Abstract

Abstract A new Monte Carlo procedure to compute the efficiency and the coincidence summing corrections for closed end HPGe detectors was developed. In this procedure detector specific response functions that give the probability of getting a signal in the peak or in the total spectrum for photons incident on the end cap of the detector are used. The procedure is time efficient in the case of large scale computations because part of the simulation is circumvented by the use of pre-computed response functions.
