Scott Hubbard. In the photo-electric effect, the gamma ray is absorbed by an atomic electron in the crystal. A portion of the gamma ray energy, equal to the electron binding energy, is used to free the electron from the atom, and the remainder of the gamma ray energy is converted into kinetic energy of the free Size: KB.

Airborne / Mobile Gamma-Ray Spectrometry Pico provides spectrometer systems that can be installed on Helicopter or fixed-wing platform. Depending on the survey requirements and/or budget, the spectrometers can be used as a stand-alone unit or it can be combined with Data Acquisition system and other ancillaries to make it a complete survey system.

The spectrometer has mapped the amounts and types of chemical elements at or near Martian surface by measuring the way gamma rays from space change when they interact with different surface materials.

It is also sensitive to changes in the way neutrons are released from Martian soil that signal the presence of liquid or frozen.
