  • Background minimisation of HPGe detector by passive graded shielding

    A simple and economical passive graded shielding which is combination of low and high Z materials for HPGe detector for background radiation minimisation is developed for better identification of the peaks in acquired spectrum by reducing Compton continuum. The present paper discusses the design and advantages of the passive graded shielding (lead + copper + aluminium) which encloses the HPGe ...

  • A Monte Carlo simulation of a whole body counter

    The preparedness of response to the accidental incorporation of radionuclides into the human body by inhalation or ingestion is a subject of major concern due to the generalised use of ionising radiations in medical and industrial applications. Following a radiological or nuclear accident or in case of occupational exposure due to an accidental dispersion of radionuclides, a rapid methodology is ...

  • Assessment of radiation dose due to natural radionuclides in various cement samples

    Samples of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC) from five companies were analysed for the measurement of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K using a HPGe detector based on high–resolution gamma spectrometry system. The measured ...
