Özet

Escape of photoelectrons, Compton-scattered photons and Ge x-rays from an HPGe detector was studied as a function of energy in the range 8-52 keV. A variable-energy source producing Cu, Rb, Mo, Ag, Ba. and Tb x-rays was used. All three mechanisms for energy loss were observed in the same experiment for Ba and Tb, while only x-ray and photoelectron escapes were evident in the spectra for Ag, Mo, Rb, and Cu. Spectral features and possible mechanisms for partial energy deposition were investigated. A Monte Carlo program was used to simulate the relevant interactions, and to estimate the escape probabilities. Copyright (C) 2004 John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
