Mirion offers the widest choice of High Purity Germanium (HPGe) detector types in the industry. Employing the appropriate technology in both materials and processing techniques, we can offer the optimum detector for your needs.
Germanium detectors are semiconductor diodes having a p-i-n structure in which the intrinsic (i) region is sensitive to ionizing radiation, particularly x rays and gamma rays.
The Intelligent Preamplifier (iPA) for High-Purity Germanium (HPGe) Detectors is a low-noise, high-speed resistive feedback preamplifier designed for high resolution gamma spectroscopy and timing measurements.
The conventional coaxial germanium detector is often referred to as Pure Ge, HPGe, Intrinsic Ge, or Hyperpure Ge. Regardless of the superlative used, the detector is basically a cylinder of germanium with an n-type contact on the outer surface, and a p-type contact on the surface of an axial well.
The Mirion Broad Energy Ge (BEGe) Detector covers the energy range of 3 keV to 3 MeV like no other.
The reverse-electrode (REGe) detector is similar in geometry to other coaxial germanium detectors with one important difference.
The Mirion XtRa unit is a coaxial germanium detector having a unique thin-window contact on the front surface which extends the useful energy range down to 3 keV.
The Low Energy Germanium (LEGe) Detector is in all aspects optimized for performance at low and moderate energies and has specific advantages over conventional planar or coaxial detectors.
The Mirion Ultra-LEGe detector extends the performance range of Ge detectors down to a few hundred electron volts, providing resolution and peak-to-background ratios once thought to be unattainable with semiconductor detectors.
The High-Purity Germanium (HPGe) Well Detector provides maximum efficiency for small samples because the sample is virtually surrounded by active detector material.
SAGe Well Detector combines excellent energy resolution at low and high energies with maximum efficiency for small samples.
The ACT-LC Ge Detector was designed specifically for the detection of internally deposited actinides, particularly uranium, plutonium and americium.
