Abstract : Experiments designed to study the behavior of various Ge(Li) detector systems are described. Techniques of improving energy resolution are discussed. Measurements of detector response to thermal radiation are described. A series of measurements showing the variation of line width as a function of energy is discussed. Finally, the appearance of anomolous peaks in the pulse height spectra is described. (Author)
