Portable Gamma Spectroscopy
In recent decades, portable gamma spectroscopy has come to supplement and even replace the traditional radiation monitor for many health physics and security applications. Knowledge of the isotopic composition of unknown radioactive material is key to identifying potential threats or hazards and distinguishing them from naturally occurring sources of radiation. Both semiconductor and scintillator detectors are used for this purpose. The versatile, low power and compact microDGF will work with essentially any type of preamplifier output signal, and is the natural solution for handheld and portable gamma detectors. Its low noise input and wide dynamic range gives state-of-the-art energy resolution even with HPGe detectors, (<0.14% at 1332 keV).
