Princeton Gamma-Tech (PGT) was founded in 1965 to address the high performance germanium Gamma ray detector market and a few years later entered also into the high performance X-ray analysis markets.
In 1998, PGT completed a merger with American Nuclear Systems (ANS) of Oak Ridge, TN, resulting in the addition of a range of MCA's and systems for use with Germanium, Si(Li)'s and NaI.
PGT has a patented technique, Quadratic Compression Conversion (QCC), which represents a new way to do NaI Gamma Spectroscopy. This approach provides for a response that appears more uniform with peaks that are equally well defined.
Quite One technology has also been perfected by PGT to minimize the micro-phonic contribution to high resolution germanium and Si(Li) detectors. This has allowed PGT to become a leader in the production of low noise mechanically cooled detectors.
