Reliability of two calculation codes for efficiency calibrations of HPGe detectors
Project ID: 1960Funded under: FP5-JRC
This paper reports the reliability of efficiency calibrations for gamma-ray detectors using the calculation codes ANGLE and LabSOCS. For experimental verification, three HPGe detectors under various laboratory geometry configurations were used for this study. An overall comparison between experimental and calculated efficiency calibration curves is presented and comments on the various error sources affecting the final results are given. The deviations are generally below 10%, which could be acceptable for many applications.
