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: 

  • Natural radionuclides

  • 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:
