Abstract

ALFA is an interactive graphical tool for analysing multiplets in alpha particle spectra using a convolution-type peak-fitting function. Developed at the CBNM, it was intended for use in decay data measurements and in assay. A tailing subtraction reduces the interference between peaks while peak positions and areas are calculated by non-linear least-squares fitting. Uncertainties are computed considering covariances; relevant optimisation parameters are saved with the spectrum file. This paper presents a brief review of the program structure, options and performance.
