Presentation Title: Simulation of a position sensitive detector based on pixelated CdTe crystals


Simulation studies were performed to determine the efficiency of the Compton reconstruction algorithms and the algorithms for the radioactive source localization and identification used for the development of the portable spectroscopic instrument developed in the framework of the COCAE project.   Various Compton Sequence reconstruction algorithms have been compared using a large number of simulated events. These algorithms are based on Compton kinematics, as well as on statistical test criteria that exploit the redundant information of events having two or more photon interactions in the active detector’s volume.
