Abstract

Counting characteristics of the system for recording rare events of the 71Ge decay in the radiochemical gallium Baksan Experiment on Sterile Transitions (BEST) are presented. Events are recorded simultaneously along eight counting channels in the energy range 0.3–16 keV, which include 71Ge decays in the region of L and K peaks with a total efficiency of up to 75%. The data analysis is based on the recording of the full shape of the leading edge of the charge pulses using a digital oscilloscope.
