Abstract : This circuit comprises a solid state crystal radiation counter having its amplified output connected in parallel to a pair of pulse height discriminators with thresholds of V sub 1 and V sub 1 volts. Wherein V sub 1 is above the counter noise level. A pair of pulse counters are arranged to count the outputs of the discriminators and a processor circuit is connected to the pulse counter outputs and is arranged to calculate the quotient of the square of the output of the pulse counter connected to the discriminator with the lower threshold and the output of the other pulse counter. A display circuit is arranged to provide a reading related to the output of the processor circuit. (Author)
