Accurate estimation of spectral density of LCS gamma-ray source

Omer, M.  ; Shizuma, Toshiyuki*; Hajima, Ryoichi*; Koizumi, Mitsuo 

Gamma-rays originated from laser Compton scattering (LCS) are convenient photon sources for nondestructive interrogation of nuclear materials. LCS can be used with nuclear resonance fluorescence (NRF) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF), the two of which are considered photon-based active interrogation techniques. However, an accurate estimation of the incident LCS $$gamma$$-ray flux is crucial. The $$gamma$$-ray flux is customarily measured using high purity germanium (HPGe) detectors, usually calibrated using standard point-like radioactive $$gamma$$-ray sources. These standard sources are entirely different from LCS beams in terms of detection geometry. Therefore, the calibration process must be corrected to meet the LCS beam conditions. Here, we demonstrate how to implement the required corrections and provide experimental validation of these corrections.
