Validation of EFFTRAN for efficiency transfer to distant geometries and volume sources

    Research outputpeer-review


    The efficiency transfer procedure from a geometry where a volume source was placed directly on the endcap of a germanium detector to three different distant geometries was carried out using the EFFTRAN code. One of these distant geometries included absorbers consisting of poly(methyl methacrylate). The efficiency transfer to this geometry therefore had to be realized as a two-stage transfer, since a direct efficiency transfer is not possible using EFFTRAN in such a case. Efficiency transfer to all three distant geometries yielded results which can be considered as fit-for-purpose in e.g. most of the applications of gamma ray spectrometry.
