Radiation Detector for Simultaneous Spectroscopy of Beta Rays and Gamma Rays
Technology Description This innovation is a radiation detecting device that can simultaneously analyze both Beta and Gamma rays. This is accomplished by using two Beta sensitive elements (called scintillators) and one Gamma scintillator. The scintillators are selected so that they are sensitive to different radiation types and have different decay ...
