Evaluation of lead shielding for a gamma-spectroscopy system

Smith, Michael; Bignell, Lindsay Jordan; Alexiev, Dimitri; Mo, L; Harrison, J

Description

Three types of lead shielding assemblies were investigated to establish which provides the lowest background as preliminary work for determining the efficiency of a High Purity Germanium (HPGe) detector. The background continuum and peaks were examined using gamma spectroscopy with a coaxial and a planar HPGe detector. The210Pb concentration in each lead sample taken from the assemblies was quantitatively determined. A French lead sample was found to have the lowest background in this relative...[Show more]
