9780470861967: Practical Gamma-ray Spectroscopy

The Second Edition of Practical Gamma-Ray Spectrometry has been completely revised and updated, providing comprehensive coverage of the whole gamma-ray detection and spectrum analysis processes. Drawn on many years of teaching experience to produce this uniquely practical volume, issues discussed include the origin of gamma-rays and the issue of quality assurance in gamma-ray spectrometry. This new edition also covers the analysis of decommissioned nuclear plants, computer modelling systems for calibration, uncertainty measurements in QA, and many more topics.

From the Publisher:

Using a minimum of mathematics, this extremely lucid guide deals exclusively with gamma-ray measurements. Covers the entire gamma-ray detection process from its origin through the detectors that are used (and how they are used) and the electronic systems associated with them to an evaluation of the process by which the resulting spectra are analyzed. Concludes with a fault-finding guide and a look at the issue of quality control in gamma-ray spectroscopy.

From the Back Cover:

Review of First Edition:
"...a rich source of 'all you need to know about gamma-ray spectrometry'" - Magnetic resonance in Chemistry, 1996.

Practical Gamma-ray Spectrometry

Gamma-ray spectrometry is one of the key techniques in the measurement of radioactive materials. Used by scientists from a wide range of disciplines, problems can be encountered by the inexperienced user because there is a deceptive simplicity in gamma-ray measurements that can hide significant pitfalls.

Practical Gamma-ray Spectrometry is aimed at the analyst using the instrument - it is nearer to a workshop manual than an academic treatise. Each chapter ends with a 'Practical Points' section, which is not a summary as such but a reminder of the more important practical features discussed within the chapter. Mathematics is deliberately kept to a minimum and, in most cases, equations are presented as faites accomplis and are not derived. The book is not intended as a survey of the latest research nor a historical study, and there are very few specific references in the text. Those that do exist are put at the end of each chapter, where there will also be found a more general short list of 'Further Reading'.

New features of this edition include:

  • A discussion of digital pulse processing
  • An explanation of recent changes in the way nuclear data is being kept up-to-date.
  • The introduction of the matter of uncertainty budgets, which are of increasing importance, and essential for laboratories seeking formal accreditation.
  • An in-depth examination of the measurement of naturally occurring radioactive materials
  • By way of examples, illustrating practical applications of gamma spectrometry, measurements in connection with the compulsory test ban treaty verification program, decommissioning of nuclear wastes and nuclear material safeguards are discussed.

No previous knowledge of nuclear matters or instrumentation is assumed, and the text can be used by complete beginners. Practical Gamma-ray Spectrometry will enable all those involved with radioactivity measurements to get the most from their equipment. It will also be of value to researchers, instructors and students in university departments where the measurement of radioactivity is routine, such as physics, chemistry, environmental biology, archaeometry and radiochemistry, and in the nuclear industry as a whole.
