How to use stabilizer in Becquerel Monitor

Post by tim.hbn » 04 Aug 2021, 00:46

Hi

I have recently purchased an AtomNano 3 spectrometer from eBay and have been making various experimental measurements with it. I have discovered that changes in temperature can cause the horizontal position of the Cs137 peak to vary by more than plus or minus 10 keV. However, I have seen that Becquerel Monitor has a "stabilizer" feature which I am hoping can solve this problem but I do not know how to use it and Becquerel Monitor does not have a help file.

Can anyone here explain to me how to use the stabilizer feature?

Thank you very much.

Tim,

Yes unfortunately Becquerel Monitor was written in japan and there is no english manual with the software.

I am not a regular user of BM, but I recall trying this feature and confirming that it worked. If you figure it out it would be great if you could write up a post on how to use it. I shall also give it a try from my end.

Hi Steven

Thank you very much for your reply and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have been very busy.

Do you know if it is possible to build circuitry into a gamma spectrometer which can make it almost immune to temperature variations?

Thank you very much.

Kind regards

Tim
