Detector de Germanio Intrínseco CANBERRA
Gamma spectrometry with Ge(Hp) detectors
Brand: CANBERRA Intrinsic Germanium Detector
Type: Equipment

Gamma spectrometry is a multi-element analysis technique allowing to obtain the different-energy gamma radiation spectrum emitted by radioactive isotopes, the latter being registered by a photon detector. It’s based on photons producing charge carriers (electron-hole excitations) freely moving within the semiconductor to the collection electrodes.


It’s a high-purity germanium semiconductor detector that allows to obtain a good energy resolution.
