Gamma Spectrometry Laboratory

The gamma spectrometry laboratory is concentrated on performing radiation tests on materials and objects using gamma spectroscopy to identify gamma emitting radioactive nuclides within them, and its resulting radiation effects.

The laboratory houses four Sodium Iodide [NaI(Tl)] gamma detector systems for radio activity screening of samples and three High Pure Germanium  [HPGe] based high resolution gamma spectrometry systems for further identification and quantification of radioactive nuclides in samples.

Some of the major tests currently performed can be summarized as follows,
