Abstract

We report on a digital pulse processing algorithm for correction of charge trapping in the planar TlBr detectors. The algorithm is performed on the signals digitized at the preamplifier stage. The algorithm is very simple and is implemented with little computational effort. By using a digitizer with a sampling rate of 250 MSample/s and 8 bit resolution, an energy resolution of 6.5% is achieved at 511 keV with a 0.7 mm thick detector.
