Abstract:

In a sample radiation detector including a pulsed Geiger-Mueller detector tube the response to gamma radiation is linearized by providing an additional reward pulse after the second of two adjacent pulses of a pulse train generated from Geiger-Muller pulses outputted from the detector tube during at least two consecutive sampling time periods and wherein the pulse train is thereafter time averaged to provide a measurement signal which is a linear function of the radiation field strength.
