The problems with reconstructing the trajectory of /spl gamma/-rays and identifying their interaction points in segmented coaxial HPGe detectors are discussed here in view of their importance in the design of the next generation of detector arrays for /spl gamma/-ray spectroscopy studies. In fact, the tracking quality of the /spl gamma/-ray interactions in the medium controls the overall detection efficiency. This paper focuses on two main points. One is the study of how the tracking… CONTINUE READING
