Evaluation of Detector Responses


In this paper a model of beta and gamma interaction is described, which was used for the Monte Carlo calculations of the chamber response energy dependence.

Model used in these calculations is applicable for radiation energy range from 10 keV to 10 MeV. Model includes bremsstrahlung effect as well as corrected cross-sections for photoeffect. Results obtained by these calculations were compared with experimentally obtained data.
