Efficiency Loss in HPGe Detectors due to Beta and Gamma Sum Coincidence


Among the secondary detection effects in gamma-ray spectroscopy with HPGe detectors that reduce the peak area and must be properly taken into account in accurate measurements, the less well known is counting loss by beta and gamma-ray sum coincidence. The fraction of lost counts was estimated assuming that a photon detection event can sum either with the… (More)
