The resolution of a HPGe detector can be determined by the
full width half maximum of the peak.
The full width half maximum (FWHM) is defined as the width of the
distribution at a level that is just half the maximum ordinate of the
peak.
The full width tenth maximum (FWTM) is defined as the width of the
distribution at a level that is 1/10 the maximum ordinate of the
peak. |
