A photon detector for unfolding X-ray energy distribution has been previously reported. Simulation studies on the unfolding method for this detector are discussed for diagnostic X-rays and mixed-source $$gamma$$ rays of $$^{137}$$Cs/$$^{60}$$Co. Response functions for diverse diagnostic X-rays are almost indistinguishable and an unfolding using error reduction method is not sufficiently worked. The spectrum surveillance method is effective in this case. However, a simple error reduction method is useful for mixed $$gamma$$ rays. For both techniques, the neural network method is promising.
