Effect of Integral Non-Linearity on Energy Calibration of Spectroscopy Systems.
The integral non-linearity (INL) of four spectroscopy systems, two integrated (A1 and A2) and two classical (B1 and B2) systems was determined using pulses from a random pulse generator. The effect of INL on the system's energy calibration was also determined. The effect is minimal in the classical system at high countrate, but is quite pronounced in the integrated system under similar conditions.
