  author={E. C. Broerman and R. Keyser and T. Twomey and D. Upp},
The search for a practical LN2-free HPGe detector has been a continuing effort for many users of high resolution gamma spectroscopy. For many, it has been the desire to eliminate the worry about supplies of LN2, the manpower costs of detector-filling and the associated yearon-year costs of maintaining LN2 supplies. For others, such as unattended monitoring or remote monitoring locations, a LN2-free solution is an absolute necessity. Until now, LN2-free cooling has suffered from two major… Expand

Performance of a Gamma-Ray and X-Ray Spectrometer Utilizing Germanium and Si(Li) Detectors Cooled by a Closed-Cycle Cryogenic Mechanical Refrigerator
A mechanically cooled spectrometer has been constructed and tested separately with Si(Li) planar, high-purity germanium (HPGe) planar, and HPGe coaxial detectors. For each of these types ofExpand
