ORTEC PROFILE “SP” Series Advanced HPGe Detectors Offer Premium Resolution Performance

Oak Ridge, TN – The ORTEC Products Group of AMETEK Advanced Measurement Technology has announced the release of Profile “SP” Series P-type high- purity Germanium (HPGe) detectors, providing premium resolution at low to medium energies for a wide range of demanding, radiation detection applications.

Profile “SP” Series HPGe detectors uniquely employ a low noise back-contact combined with a semi-planar crystal geometry. Compared with other semi-planar HPGe detectors, the proprietary back contact of the Profile “SP” improves energy resolution at lower energies, while supporting the same resolution at the higher energies.

“For customers measuring point or large area sources with energies between 3kev to 3Mev, Profile ‘SP’ detectors provide unprecedented resolution performance vital in complex multi-nuclide spectrums,” states Product Manager Gregor Geurkov. “Premium resolution improves isotope identification for more accurate measurement results and faster counting. SP detectors also feature a stable, thin-front contact, allowing warm storage, simplified detector handling and lower associated storage costs.”

The ORTEC Products Group is the leading supplier of high-resolution, HPGe-based radiation identifiers with 54 years of experience in the design and manufacture of highly sensitive radiation detectors used by government and industrial laboratories, nuclear facilities and medical research and in nuclear safeguards.
