TlBr detectors have been investigated as room-temperature or close to ambient temperature operational semiconductor gamma-ray spectrometers. The three-dimensional position-sensitive single-polarity charge sensing technique, successfully used on CdZnTe gamma-ray imaging spectrometers, has been applied to 5-mm thick TlBr detectors and has resulted in energy resolutions as good as 0.73% FWHM and 0.97% FWHM at 662 keV on the best anode pixel and from all nine pixelated anodes respectively.
