Lanthanum halide detector energy resolution measurements at 662 keV for a LaBr/sub 3/ crystal (3.67%) and a 6 /spl times/ 6 array of LaCl/sub 3/ crystals (4.65%) coupled to a 5'' diameter Hamamatsu PSPMT are compared to measurements on arrays of NaI (7.37%) and BGO (16.07%). The uncorrected energy resolution using the entire LaCl/sub 3/ array is poor (13%) due to weaker responses from the edge pixels, but is improved to 5.85% with a position dependent gain correction. Spectra are presented from… CONTINUE READING
