GESPECOR: A versatile tool in gamma-ray spectrometry

Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry (Impact Factor: 1.03). 01/2001; 248(2):359-364.


Abstract GESPECOR is a Monte Carlo based software developed for the computation of efficiency, of matrix effects and of coincidence summing effects in gamma-ray spectrometry. GESPECOR can be applied to coaxial and well-type HPGe or to Ge(Li) detectors and to various types of sources, including point, cylindrical, and spherical sources or Marinelli beakers. In this paper the structure of GESPECOR is presented and the procedures applied are described. The uncertainty of the results computed by GESPECOR is carefully analyzed. The analysis shows that GESPECOR is able to provide results with a well defined uncertainty, in a user friendly WINDOWS environment.
