Contribution of pair production process in full-energy peakefficiency calculation of semiconductor detectors for axial
Study has been made of the contribution of the pair production process in calculation of detector efficiency.
Particular attention has been paid to positron annihilation in flight and subsequent scattering of the annihilation quanta
in the detector material. A mathematical formula has been derived to directly calculate the liner attenuation coefficient
of the full-energy peak (mp) for a Ge (Li) detector using an axial point source. The calculated values of the photopeak
efficiency are found to be in a good agreement with published experimental data.|
