Interim ngineering rept. no. 2, 1 Oct-31 Dec 61, Jan 62, 4p. (Contract NO BSR-*%%!!) Unclassified report DESCRIPTORS: (*Radiation counters, Photons, *Beta counters, *Gamma counters, *Dosimeters, Lithium, Diodes, Design, Effectiveness, ests.) (Radioactivity Det ctor ) The operation of a spherical lithium-drifted p-i-n detector as a photon counter was examined. When the depletion width is about 2 mm, the efficiency for counting Co60 photons is 6%. The detector is quite symmetrical when used as a 4 pi counter for these photons.
