Standard

This standard establishes methods for calibration and usage of germanium detectors for the measurement of gamma-ray emission rates of radionuclides. It covers the energy and full-energy peak efficiency calibration as well as the determination of gamma-ray energies in the 0.06 to 2 MeV energy region and is designed to yield gamma-ray emission rates with an uncertainty of +or-3 percent. This standard applies primarily to measurements which do not involve overlapping peaks, and in which peak to continuum considerations are not important.<>

N42.14-1999 - American National Standard for Calibration and Use of Germanium Spectrometers for the Measurement of Gamma-Ray Emission Rates of Radionuclides
January 1, 1999 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Methods for the calibration and use of germanium spectrometers for the measurement of gamma-ray energies and emission rates over the energy range from 59 keV to approximately 3000 keV, and for the calculation of source activities from these measurements, are established. Minimum requirements for aut...
