Abstract  

A new approach is proposed for the measurement of the time-dependent processes in gamma-ray spectrometry. During data acquisition, the energy and the detection time of each event are recorded and the data are later analyzed off-line. This separation of acquisition and data handling extends the possibilities of the analysis. A series of demonstration experiments was performed to show the feasibility of the method, where the half-lives of radioactive isotopes were determined.
