Idaho National Laboratory

Gamma-ray Spectrometry Center

Gamma-ray spectrometry is widely applied as a tool for the assay of radioactive source material to identify the isotopes present and characterize radiation fields. Applications include:

A conservative estimate is that over 200,000 gamma-ray spectrometers are in use in academic and industrial labs and facilities throughout the world. Because of the highly technical nature of these techniques the training of scientists and engineers in this area has been a continuing challenge. To assist in the application of this technology, a number of books and publications have been produced at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL).
