Abstract

A method to determine the photopeak position of the γ absorption spectrum of radioactive sources in low light yield scintillators as lead tungstate is discussed. The method is based on the parametrization of both the Compton and photoelectric contributions to the spectrum and it is proven to be reliable and to give stable and precise results.
