Abstract

The GESPECOR (Germanium Spectrometry Correction factors) software, previously developed for computing the self-attenuation and coincidence summing corrections, was applied to the computation of the coincidence summing correction factors for a well-type and two coaxial HPGe detectors. Cylindrical samples as well as Marinelli beaker samples were considered. The computed values are in good agreement with carefully measured values. A detailed study of the uncertainties assigned to the results was carried out. The analysis shows that the procedures used in GESPECOR are reliable and provide results with a well defined accuracy.
