Gamma-ray spectrometry is a key technique in the study of the decay of radioactive materials. Used by scientists from a wide range of disciplines, problems can be encountered by the inexperienced user because there is a deceptive simplicity in gamma-ray measurements which can hide significant pitfalls. To resolve this situation, the authors of Practical Gamma-Ray Spectrometry have drawn on many years of teaching experience to produce this uniquely practical volume, giving comprehensive coverage of the whole gamma-ray detection and spectrum analysis processes. Discussions of the origin of gamma-rays and the issue of quality assurance in gamma-ray spectrometry are also included. Practical Gamma-Ray Spectrometry is written with the user in mind and has the following benefits:
* Mathematics are kept to a minimum throughout.
* No previous knowledge of nuclear matters or instrumentation is assumed.
* Detectors and their associated electronic systems are discussed.
* Fault-finding guide ensures that any problems can be sorted out with the minimum of fuss.
Practical Gamma-Ray Spectrometry will enable all those involved with radioactivity measurements to get the most from their equipment. It will also be of great value to teachers and students in departments where radioactivity is studied, such as physics, chemistry, environmental biology, archaeometry and radiochemistry.

From the Publisher:

Using a minimum of mathematics, this extremely lucid guide deals exclusively with gamma-ray measurements. Covers the entire gamma-ray detection process from its origin through the detectors that are used (and how they are used) and the electronic systems associated with them to an evaluation of the process by which the resulting spectra are analyzed. Concludes with a fault-finding guide and a look at the issue of quality control in gamma-ray spectroscopy.
