Improvement of the performance of BEGe germanium detectors using pulse shape analysis
This project brings together the internationally leading expertise of the University of Liverpool Nuclear Physics group, with the world’s largest germanium detector supplier, Canberra.
Low-Background Environmental Measurements (SAGe)
The aim of this new project is to reduce counting times and significantly simplify user operation of high efficiency “well” type detector systems for measurements of environmental radioactivity.
