Abstract

The basic equipment for detection of prompt gamma rays is the gamma-ray spectrometer. The main component is the detector which converts the energy of the gamma ray to an electronic signal. This signal is amplified, shaped, digitized and stored in a histogram that makes up a spectrum of gamma peaks.
