The Second Edition of Practical Gamma-Ray Spectrometry has been completely revised and updated, providing comprehensive coverage of the whole gamma-ray detection and spectrum analysis processes. Drawn on many years of teaching experience to produce this uniquely practical volume, issues discussed include the origin of gamma-rays and the issue of quality assurance in gamma-ray spectrometry. This new edition also covers the analysis of decommissioned nuclear plants, computer modelling systems for calibration, uncertainty measurements in QA, and many more topics.That does not diminish the value of this manual from a general informative point of view. ... about X-ray energies and emission rates independent of nuclear decay can be found at http://ie.lbl.govtomic/x2.pdf ... Invaluable at the time, this is still of interest today and is available on the internet, together with the Ge(Li)-Si(Li )anbsp;...
