Optimisation of the MC-model of a p-type Ge-spectrometer for the purpose of efficiency determination.

An optimisation of the geometrical model of a p-type detector used for material screening was carried out to improve the accuracy of Monte Carlo simulations in reproducing spectrometric measurements. Gamma-ray sources were measured to determine the dimensions of the detector dead layer and borehole. An agreement between simulations and measurement within 3… CONTINUE READING
