Paper Abstract

Spectrometers must have the ability to identify Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) that may be present, even if hidden and masked by naturally occurring radioactive materials) NORM). Prediction of the g spectrum is vital to recognize the different combinations, as the shape is determined by absorption and geometrical factors . A program was developed, which utilizes geometric equations and detector characteristics data to produce the synthetic gamma-ray spectra. The program is a convenient tool to check the compliance of the spectrometers to the requirements concerning the identification of different isotopes combinations.
