Abstract

There is a great interest to find nuclear accidents as soon as possible and/or to carry out daily monitoring and control for nuclear facilities from a distance. In order to satisfy these requirements, a direction finding gamma-ray detector has been developed as a monitor of gamma-ray leakage from such facilities. The detector comprises three scintillators made of the same material of sodium iodine with thallium NaI(Tl) . Computer simulations and laboratory experiments show the possibility of direction finding of gamma rays with reasonable accuracy.
