bMCA is a compact, digital Multi-Channel Analyzer (MCA), which can perform Pulse Height Analysis (PHA) and Multi-Channel Scaling (MCS) of the signal produced by a standard 14-pin standard photomultiplier coupled to a scintillation detector.
The device is therefore useful for obtaining the energy spectrum from the photon radiation detected by the scintillator, and can be easily interfaced to a typical PC or notebook via a standard USB or Ethernet ports for further data transfer and analysis.
bMCA is provided with a basic software package that allows to control the device, and to acquire and visualize the energy spectrum.
A set of programming libraries are also offered, which makes the incorporation of the bMCA into existing radiation systems or setups very easy. The programming libraries are available for both MS Windows and Linux operating systems.
bMCA can be provided with several scintillation detector assemblies. Our catalogue includes NaI(Tl), CsI(Tl), BGO, LaBr3 and CeBr3 detectors.
Standard configurations with:
- NaI(Tl), CsI(Tl) and BGO, with cylindrical volume 2”x2” or 3”x3”
- CeBr3 and LaBr3 with cylindrical volume 1.5”x1.5”
- LaBr3 with cylindrical volume 1”x1”
Other scintillators types and volumes can be provided on request.
