TOPAZ-Pico is a compact, stand-alone digital Multi-Channel Analyzer (MCA), which can perform Pulse Height Analysis (PHA) of the signal produced by a standard scintillation detectors.
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 port for further data transfer and analysis.
The MCA is provided with a basic software package that allows to control the device, and to acquire and visualize the energy spectrum. The bMCA software incorporates an advanced and easy-to-use “discovery” function that can be used to detect automatically the MCAs of the bMCA series and TOPAZ series connected to the PC.
TOPAZ-Pico is provided with several scintillation detector assemblies. Our catalogue includes NaI(Tl), CsI(Tl), BGO and CeBr3 detectors. Standard configurations with
- NaI(Tl), CsI(Tl) and BGO, with cylindrical volume 2”x2” or 3”x3”
- CeBr3 with cylindrical volume 1.5”x1.5”
Other scintillator types and volumes can be provided on request.
In addition to standard supply, the following options are available upon request:
- Topaz-Pico/BNC has BNC connector for signal and separate SHV connector for HV output
- Topaz-Pico OEM board
