Abstract:

By suppressing the Compton response the antiCompton spectrometer emphasizes the photopeak without sacrificing resolution. The detectors response matrix is experimentally determined with five monoenergetic gamma ray sources. By interpolating between these known energies and extrapolating from these measured shapes the response to gamma rays within the range 230 Kev to 1460 Kev is found. Applying the inverse response matrix to several line spectra unfolds the pulse height spectra. Author
