The preparation and operation of lithium drift germanium detectors Thompson, Albert Charles


Lithium drifted germanium detectors have been prepared for use as high resolution gamma ray spectrometers. The fabrication procedure and the problems which can arise during preparation are discussed in detail. Using the techniques described, germanium detectors having the following characteristics were prepared. Active Volume 1.0 cm³ 0.5 cm³ 2.0 cm³ 1.7 cm³ Total Resolution at 661 keV 5.0 KeV 4.0 KeV 4.0 KeV 2.9 KeV
