NKS-B GammaWorkshops: Nordic workshops for users of gamma spectrometry
A series of linked workshops on gamma spectrometry, following up issues identified at the two GammaSem seminars, held in 2009 and 2010.
26-28 of September 2011, Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Roskilde, Denmark
The aim of GammaWorkshops was to enable Nordic users to address common problems in gamma spectrometry, through a series of lectures and practical exercises in addition to sharing their experience with others in a similar position. The workshop was attended 50 participants from various backgrounds across the five Nordic countries.
The main topics covered were:
Matrix and absorption corrections
Uncertainties and detection limits
True Coincidence Summing corrections
Technical background material from the workshop is available on the GammaWiki web site: http://halla.gr.is/wiki/GammaWiki/index.php/Main_Page
