The performance of four types of - and X-ray radiation detectors for environmental applications was evaluated in the 10–450 keV energy range. Two cadmium zinc telluride (CdZnTe) room temperature semiconductor detectors were evaluated along with a cryogenically cooled semiconductor detector and two different types of scintillation detectors. The energy resolution, absolute peak detection efficiency and peak-to-background ratio of each of the detectors were calculated and intercompared. The advantages and disadvantages of environmental applications of each detector, along with their performance results, are summarized.
