Abstract : Abstract: Gamma ray spectroscopy enables the identification of radioactive sources, and, with proper calibration, their activities. In use since the 1950s, NaI(Tl) spectroscopic systems remain popular due to their affordability and high detection efficiency. The crystals and accompanying electronics may vary, and there are practical choices necessary to produce the best possible spectra for a given application or correctly interpret system performance. An overview of the scintillation mechanism as well as the common features of a gamma ray spectrum are presented in this paper. This includes a discussion of the impacts of the size and shape of detector crystals on the spectrum and counting efficiency. A description of supporting electronics is included along with techniques for arranging and optimizing them. Coaxial cables become part of the circuit and can degrade the detector signal if they have mismatched impedance or excessive length. A discussion is included of tradeoffs involved in selecting combinations of individual electronics components for NaI(Tl) spectroscopic applications. Lastly, a comprehensive energy calibration procedure is provided. This paper thus serves as a tutorial on several practical aspects of a NaI(Tl) gamma ray spectroscopy system.

This is the second in a series of three proceedings of the 20th Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference (PBNC). This volume covers the topics of Operation and Maintenance, Supply Capability and Quality Control, Fuel Cycles, as well as New Technology and New Applications. As one in the most important and influential conference series of nuclear science and technology, the 20th PBNC was held in Beijing and the theme of this meeting was “Nuclear: Powering the Development of the Pacific Basin and the World”. It brought together outstanding nuclear scientist and technical experts, senior industry executives, senior government officials and international energy organization leaders from all across the world. The book is not only a good summary of the new developments in the field, but also a useful guideline for the researchers, engineers and graduate students.
