HPGe Detector Shields

Lead shields prevent high background counts with gamma detectors due to external sources, thus reducing counting times and improving the lower limit of detection. An active shield option using cosmic veto technology is also available to minimize background further for ultra-low background detector applications.

Low Background
Detector Systems

The term "low background" is used fairly indiscriminately in describing gamma analysis systems. The one common denominator for such systems is some form of shielding, but beyond this, anything goes.
