Standard Test Procedures for Germanium Gamma-Ray Detectors
|Publication Date:||18 October 1996|
This standard applies to germanium radiation detectors that are used for the detection and high-resolution spectrometry of gamma rays, X rays, and charged particles that produce hole-electron pairs in the crystal lattice. Included are detector endcap and reentrant (Marinelli) beaker standards.
Measurements that depend upon phonon production are outside the scope of this standard.
