Background Reduction Using Collimators on a Portable HPGe Nuclide Identifier

Abstract

The portable germanium detector based HHRIDs are generally intended to be operated in low to medium radiation fields with as much sensitivity as possible. However, in some circumstances the interfering radioactive background may be significant with respect to the source of interest. For example: a shipping container full of NORM may be used in an attempt to… (More)
