  6. 20 points extra credit: Consider the following NaI spectrum obtained with a Co60 source.  Explain the four “peaks” that are visible in the spectrum in terms of the properties of the source and the detector.

 

Note: your explanation should be quantitative.  For example, if you identify one feature as the Compton edge, you should show that it occurs at an energy that is consistent with your expectations.  You also should indicate with what primary gamma-ray energy it is associated.
