Evaluation of Ge(Li) Compton suppression spectrometers for non-destructive radiochemical analysis

  • J. A. Cooper
Physical Methods Section


Ge(Li) Compton suppression spectrometers are evaluated relative to the specific needs of the analytical radiochemist. Their application to the analysis of radionuclides found in neutron activation, fission product, and environmental radionuclide analyses is discussed.
