AT6101, AT6101B Spectrometers

AТ6101 and AT6101B Portable multifunction scintillation gamma spectrometers can be used in laboratories as well as for working in field conditions. Main spectrometer function is radionuclide identification (natural, medical, industrial) without connection to a PC. Additional functionality: search and detection of radioactivity sources and dose rate measurement.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Spectrometers are composed of an external spectrometric gamma radiation detection unit and a processing unit.

Highly-sensible scintillation NaI(Tl) detectors are used for measurement of gamma radiation energy distribution, ambient gamma radiation dose rate equivalent, search and identification of radionuclides. Geiger-Muller counter tube, integrated into the processing unit, is used to extend the range of ambient gamma radiation dose rate measurement as well as to monitor radiation level around the operator.

External detection units can be connected to the spectrometer to measure alpha and beta particles flux density of contaminated surfaces.
