  Neutron Activation Analysis Laboratory

Nuclear radiation from activated products is measured by a high-resolution g-ray spectrometry, which includes detectors made from high purity germanium associated with preamplifiers, amplifiers and multichannel analyzers.

HPGe - detector. (62 Kb).

HPGe - detector.

At the g-ray spectrometry laboratory the following equipment is available:

  • Five high pure Germanium detectors:
    - 3 for high energies (CAMBERRA GC3019 –5Kv; GC4019 –4Kv; GC3518 –3Kv)
    - 2 for low energies (CAMBERRA 2001 CP –2Kv; ORTEC GLP 25300/13 –1Kv)
  • Two amplifiers – CAMBERRA 2020
  • Two amplifiers – ORTEC 572
  • Two high tension sources – ORTEC 459 (0 – 5Kv)
  • One high tension source – ORTEC 659 (0 – 5Kv)
  • One high tension source – TENELEC TC950 (0 – 5Kv)
