Abstract

This paper describes a direction finding gamma-ray detector, which consists of three different scintillators; NaI (Tl), CsI (Tl) and BGO. The detector positively increases directional sensitivity to incident gamma-rays, and can measure direction, energy and number of gamma-rays. This detector will be useful to carry out monitoring of nuclear power plants or radiation facilities in emergencies. It will be also effective in searching for radiation sources such as radioisotopes and radioactive contaminations. Experimental results have shown the proposed directional detector has a potential for practical use in real fields and will contribute to radiation emergency preparedness.
