Determination of the photopeak detection efficiency of a HPGe detector, for volume sources, via Monte Carlo simulations.

by Damon, Raphael Wesley

Abstract (Summary)
The Environmental Radioactivity Laboratory (ERL) at iThemba LABS undertakes experimental work using a high purity germanium (HPGe) detector for laboratory measurements. In this study the Monte Carlo transport code, MCNPX, which is a general-purpose Monte Carlo N &minus
