IAEA RGU-1 Reference Material - 700 - 1200 keV

Home Page | Examples Page | 0 - 200 keV | 200 - 700 keV | 1200 - 2300 keV

This spectrum was measured using a 45% n-type detector, mounted in a standard 10cm thick cylindrical graded shield, in a routine laboratory at typical altitude with no special background suppression facilities. The material is IAEA RGU-1 reference material. The spectrum represents 120 ml of that, measured in a cylindrical container stood on the detector face. Sample height was 41 mm. There is negligible thorium in this material, but the spectrum is likely to contain peaks from the 232Th decay series from the natural background. The are a number of inidentified peaks in the spectrum that could well be coincidence sum peaks.
