Angle is long existing and well known software for gamma-efficiency calculations for semiconductor and scintillation detectors. Angle allows for accurate determination of the activities of gamma-spectroscopic samples for which no “replicate” standard exists, in terms of geometry and matrix. Semi-empirical “efficiency transfer” (ET) approach is used, based on the effective solid angle (Ω) calculations.
Angle 4, the actual version, is a result of 24 years of development, practical experience in numerous gamma-spectrometry laboratories worldwide and constructive users’ feedback.
Angle is distributed all over the world, with users all on all continents. It is currently available in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Japanese language.
Some of the most prominent Angle users are:
- NASA, Glenn Research Center, USA
- Rolls-Royce Fuel Cell Systems Inc., USA
- Lockheed Martin, USA
- Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA
- British Energy Generation Ltd., UK
- Magnox South Limited, UK
- Nuclear Generation - EDF Energy Ltd., UK
- Universities of: Exeter, Iowa, South Dakota, Southampton, Surrey, Salzburg, Alaska, Ghent...
