Hello from Texas

Post by Cole Wilhite » Sat Oct 30, 2021 2:04 am

Hello,
My name is Cole Wilhite, I have recently got into gamma spectroscopy but I have no idea of where to start.
I want to build a wireless bluetooth or 433 MHz gamma spectrometer for a hobby using a silicon photomultiplier and a homemade MCA to log the isotopes and send them to either my tablet or a display in my room for passive detection.

There really isn't a whole lot of discussion in regards to silicon photomultipliers in this forum or any other forums that are in English.
I would use standard PMT tubes but i already have 3 crystals on the way.
