A mathematical model has been developed for estimating the performance of an Anti-Compton gama ray spectrometer. This spectrometer consists of a small cylindrical crystal surrounded by a larger, hollow cylindrical crystal, both composed of NaI(Tl). The results of a two-parameter study-incident gamma ray energy and relative crystal positions-are given.
