Main >>  Spectrometry  >> QUADRO

The spectrometer QUADRO is intended for study the energy distribution of gamma rays and beta particles and also measuring the activity of gamma-, beta- and alpha-emitting radionuclides in environmental samples and process medium. The spectrometer used for measuring the activity of natural (Naturally-Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) - Ra-226, Rn-222, Th-232, K-40) and artificial radionuclides (Cs-137, Sr-90, Cs-134, Co-60, I-131, Ru-106, radio-pharmaceuticals and etc.) in materials with density from 0,1 to 2,0 g/ml, and in metals.

Description

The operation principle of spectrometers is based on the registration of gamma-quanta, beta or alpha particles emitted by radionuclides contained in the samples by an appropriate type of detector, which outputs an electrical impulse with amplitude, which is proportional to the energy of the detected gamma-quantum, beta or alpha particles.
