This handbook of gamma spectrometry is intended for use by nuclear inspectors and concentrates on non-destructive assay of such material using the MCA-166 spectrometer (GBS Rossendorf) and its software together with a HP-200 palm-top computer. It summarizes and recalls basic knowledge and technical and nuclear data shared by different applications of gamma spectrometry in that field. The handbook is divided into three parts:
-Detailed user instructions for a series of measurement programs in the form of step-by-step procedures.
-A glossary with some basic concepts of nuclear physics and gamma radiation measurements.
-A small library of spectra (U, Pu, Th, MOX and spent fuel). ).
