Abstract

A four-detector time-differential perturbed angular correlation spectrometer controlled by an inexpensive microcomputer is described. The use of twin-single-channel analyzers permits each detector to identify both gamma rays in the cascade. An improved gating logic system reduces the MCA/computer deadtime and allows larger sample activity and faster data accumulation. The twin-single-channel analyzer and gating circuit additions also permit simultaneous accumulation of two statistically independent sets of four-channel spectra. The spectrometer provides on-line display of raw data and the perturbation function derived from either set of four-channel spectra.
