Characterisation of a well-type NaI(Tl) detector by means of a Monte Carlo simulation for radionuclide metrology application

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A well-type NaI(Tl) detector was modelled and characterised by means of a Monte Carlo simulation, as part of a project to develop a 4���� (Plastic Scintillator)-4���� instrument to be used for the primary standardisation of radionuclides at ANSTO. The simulation based on GEANT4 was used to characterise the 4���� detector in terms of potential dead layer/inactive materials, full energy peak efficiency, coincidence-summing correction, and energy resolution. An excellent agreement was obtained between the simulation results and the experimental measurements.
