DESCRIPTION

A scintillation detector based on NaI (Tl) is used to record gamma radiation, search for gamma sources and radioactive contamination, measure the energy distribution of gamma radiation and identify radionuclides, and also measure gamma radiation dose rates.

The principle of operation is based on the conversion of the energy of gamma rays acting on the scintillation detectors NaJ (Tl) to the amplitude-proportional electric pulses with the help of a photoelectric multiplier (hereinafter - PMT), then converting the amplitudes of these pulses into a digital code by means of an analog-to-digital converter In the future ADC) and their simultaneous distribution by amplitudes - through channels. Within 1 sec. In the random access memory (RAM) of the microcontroller, accumulation of pulses along channels is performed. Every second, the contents of RAM memory, upon a command from the computer of the measuring unit, are fed to the input of this computer in the form of a digital value "number of pulses per second" corresponding to a certain absorption energy. In addition, when working in stand-alone mode, the measurement results are recorded in the flash memory of the spectrometer.
