Differential Pulse Height Spectrum

  1. Sep 11, 2011 #1
    Hi there,
    So I am doing this lab write-up at the moment with a single channel analyser. The following diagram pretty much sums up the setup:


    So pretty much I have found a suitable operating voltage gain by recording number of counts vs. gain and now I must change the Baseline-E (assumedly the centre of the "window" of energies analysed) and plot the number of counts. So I have got the following plot:


    I must deduce the differential pulse height spectrum from this graph. I haven't really been introduced to this concept but have done a bit of reading, but generally most of the graphs I see use the multichannel analyser.

    Could anyone help me out and desribe how I can find the DPHS from this plot?

    Thank you very much.

    Maybe you can get this moved to NUCLEAR ENGINEERING where some experts are more likely to se it??
