gamma-ray spectrometry

[′gam·ə ‚rā spek′träm·ə·trē]
(nucleonics)
Determination of the energy distribution of gamma rays emitted by nuclei. Also known as gamma-ray spectroscopy.
In particular, a variation of neutron activation analysis in which the induced radiation from the sample is gamma rays instead of neutrons.

Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) followed by high resolution gamma-ray spectrometry is a well-established, sensitive, non-destructive, accurate, precise, specific, and universally applicable analytical technique, which can provide multi-elemental characterization of aluminum oxide with low limits of detection (LODs) and high accuracy [13-15].
Monte Carlo simulation, such as GEANT4, MCNP, EGS, and PENELOPE, can be adapted to the computation of the efficiency of gamma-ray spectrometry detectors [2].
