Keywords: x-ray

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is the emission of fluorescent secondary X-rays from a material or substance that has been excited by bombarding it with high-energy X-rays.

PGT specializes in the design and fabrication of custom and turn-key XRF detection systems. Our designed incorporate a cryogen free Silicon Drift X-ray Detector (SDD), temperature controllers, Multi Channel Analyzers (MCA), equipment position controllers and sensors, calibration sources, and spectroscopy analytical software.

Handheld Radioactive Isotope Identifiers (RIID

Based on our patented QCC technology â„¢ (Quadratic Compression Converterâ„¢) our instruments prove to have the fastest and most sensitive gamma source identication in the industry. The PGT Lite is our most convenient and intuitive radiation detection instrument.


Nuclear Detection

Electronics include complete spectroscopy systems as well as multi-channel analyzer component systems with software for data acquisition and qualitative and quantitative analysis. PGT manufactures hyperpure germanium detectors for gamma ray spectroscopy as well as support electronics and software. Detector styles include P-types, N-types, well counters and low energy detectors.


Multi-Channel Analyzers

This instrument includes the detector bias supply, a high performance analog pulse processor, 8000- or 16,000-channel MCA, and an Ethernet interface. Just connect the detector to the System 8000, and then connect the System 8000 to the PC or network. The System 8000 is a complete spectrometer in a single integrated package.
