Paper Abstract

The construction of a cylindrical ionization chamber, filled with high pressure xenon (55 bar) is described. The main characteristics of this detector are given. It is shown that the energy resolution of this detector, at 662 keV, is 4% FWHM for the optimal parameters of the gas mixture, applied electric field and shaping time. The detector was tested within a temperature interval between 20°C and 170°C. The dependence of the energy resolution of the cylindrical gamma-ray detector is quite stable. This detector can be used in geology, geophysics, oil and gas well logging.
