Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

You're absolutely right John, if I wanted to count in real time. But that's not the case! Instead I want to record a longer period to a fast PC hard disk (a SSD) and to analyze the recorded data much more sophisticated by a statistical software for hours, days and weeks to solve the piled up amplitu...

Re: How to figure out the specs of old Rigaku scintillation tube probe?

Some further thoughts from me: The external 5 pole connection of the preamplifer board fits to the preamplified positive going signal scheme in https://www.crystals.saint-gobain.com/sites/imdf.crystals.com/files/documents/scintillation-operating-manual_70421.pdf page 3 and 4 (page count as labeled) ...

Re: How to figure out the specs of old Rigaku scintillation tube probe?

Ok guys. Here comes the next episode of how figure out (hack) the signal of the Rigaku scintillation tube probe. First of all, this is NOT a standard "universitary" scintillation probe, where the original photo multiplier signal goes directly on the signal cable. This is a scintillation probe with a...

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

I want to count them seperately by energy. E.g.: #127 x 2.3 keV #245 x 3.5 keV # 87 x 7.1 keV Deconvolution looks good. There are three R-Packages for deconvolution: - dtangle - deconvolveR - decon I do not have any experience in deconvultion, yet. How many samples (measurements) would deconvolution...

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

Rich, currently I do not have any real scintillation data, as I am still working on figuring out the electrical pin allocation of my "brand new" second hand scintillator tube.

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

Thanks Rich! First of all it is absolutely common when two or more scientists from different disciplines talk together in some kind of interdisciplinary communication, that they do not understand each other fully, simply due to different education and different wording. This sometimes requires a lot...

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

Thank you guys. All those pitfalls in the electronic pathway of the analog signal beginning with the PMT and ending with analog preprocessor part before the A/D converter have been very insightful. I have figured out, that 50 samples/ observations may be a good start for applying mixed distribution ...

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

For my understanding. Do you or don't you agree with: However I can say, the more single event amplitudes are contained in a cumulated measured amplitude, the more easily the amplitudes of two or more low energy events do exactly pile up to the amplitude of a higher energy event and the more individ...

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

Well, yes I thought it would require 100 or maybe even 1000 samples to disassemble a multiple signal voltage amplitude (of 20 ns in this case) into its originals properly . This is to some degree also a statistical/ mathematical question I have not researched fully, this time. However I can say, the...

Re: Spectrum Recorder PCI-E Card?

I see,measurement technology is unbelievable expensive in comprehension to other electronic equipment. Maybe I could use some nerd raw data acqusition equipment like a software defined radio . The features of the offered software defined radio are: 1 MHz to 6 GHz operating frequency up to 20 million...
