Description

Germanium detectors represent the best choice when high resolution gamma spectroscopy is required for accurate nuclide identification and quantification.

However, some potential problems can compromise the use of these technologies when the spectroscopy system is intended to be used in harsh environments such as:

  • Shock and vibration (transportation by trucks, separation of space launcher stages)
  • Industrial use in sites where liquid nitrogen is not available for detector refilling
  • Extreme climatic conditions (underwater operation, very high or low temperatures, etc.) in industrial or space environments

The combination of Mirion's extensive experience with the evolution of new technologies (encapsulation, ultra high vacuum, waterproof design, shock absorption devices) make us the world leader in scientific and special applications involving HPGe detectors.

Our Mirion expertise allows our specialists to deliver outstanding and reliable detection instruments for the most demanding industries and research centers. Researchers have come to depend on these specialized instruments for their most critical experiments and studies.
