The new bGamma spectroscopy Software is an all-inclusive, modern software package for gamma-ray spectrum analysis, radionuclide identification and quantification. The software can analyse any recorded gamma-ray spectrum independently of the detector type, geometry or sample.
bGamma provides all the necessary tools and functionality for performing a detailed analysis of complex gamma-ray spectra and the corresponding radionuclide identification for the given sample.
bGammasoftware is a comprehensive software package designed from the outset to bring gamma spectrum analysis up to modern requirements.
The analysis of the energy spectra from a radioactive sample using spectroscopic software is a critical step in gamma-ray spectrometry due to the complexities involved. For instance, the spectra may contain large amounts of interference between elemental emissions, complex continuums, a presence of spectrum artefacts (sum and escape peaks) or unknown sample characteristics among many others.
The modern graphical user interface (GUI) designed into our software simplifies this process by bringing intuitive spectrum visualisation and analysis, providing important “visual” feedback of the analysis results.
bGamma software is a multi-document software package allowing the user to analyze multiple-spectra at the same time and/or acquire data from several connected detectors.
The large quantity and variety of calculation algorithms implemented into bGamma allows the user to analyze a broad range of gamma-ray spectra independently of the detector used, e.g. from high-resolution Ge spectra to medium resolution scintillator spectra from CeBr3, LaBr3, or the widely-used NaI(Tl).
bGamma software runs seamlessly on MS Windows, Linux, MAC iOS & Android.

Calibrations are an essential process to correctly analyze any gamma-ray spectrum. bGamma offers all the necessary tools and functionalities to make any calibration. The energy and shape (FWHM) calibrations are unified into one dialogue. They contain a lot of hidden “know-how” for suggesting lines to be used for calibrations independent of the type of the spectrum and detector. A powerful GUI provides visual feedback to the calibration results.
Efficiency calibration uses a versatile fitting engine to derive the complex calibration coefficients in a polynomial of a logarithmic of energy. This calibration dialogue also provides a simple but yet comprehensive GUI for immediate and visual feedback of obtained efficiency calibration results.
bGamma incorporates the entire radionuclide decay emissions database. All nuclides data available at any instance of the spectrum analysis and/or data visualization. The nuclide decay data are taken from the internationally well-known data file – NuDat, which is produced, certified and maintained by the International Nuclear Data Committee.
