PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

For applications involving the routine laboratory measurement of gamma radiation, an instrument is described which is simple to opeiate, versatile, compact, and reliable. It consists of a pulse amplifier with charge-sensitive input and delay-line shaping, a differential discriminator capable of covering the range from 2 kev to 7 Mev, a calibration pulser, and a power supply. All controls are calibrated directly in terms of gamma energy. Construction is modular for ease of maintenance, and all circuits use solid-state components. (auth)
