Welcome to Dr. Westmeier GmbH!
Your specialists in nuclear spectrometry and applications of nuclear measurements
Dr. Westmeier GmbH is your reliable partner since over 30 years in all questions related to:
- Gamma-ray spectrometry
- Alpha-particle spectrometry
- Dosimetry and
- Radiation protection
We consult for all questions in nuclear spectrometry and we provide all kinds of nuclear measuring equipment. Our spectrometers (even portable Gamma-ray and Alpha-particle spectrometers) consist of selected and tested components which are configured together with our high-precision spectrum analysis software for customer’s needs and special applications. Our own published data catalogs (Gamma-Catalog and Alpha-Catalog) provide evaluated nuclear data for the libraries in our softwares.
We configure and optimize measuring systems employing all modern detectors for measurement of nuclear radiation such as HPGe, Si(Li), NaI(Tl), LaBr3(Ce), CeBr3, BGO, CsI(X) in all versions as well as Si-Semiconductors for Alpha- and Beta-particle detection such as PIPS and ULTRA, and gridded ionisation chambers. Moreover we provide 3He- and other detectors for neutron counting and spectrometry.
All scientific personnel of Dr. Westmeier GmbH are actively involved in various research projects, such as basic research on transmutation of long-lived nuclear waste, evaluation of experimental data on radioactive decay or development of novel algorithms for high-precision analysis of spectra.
With the help of our new spectrum analysis algorithms one can now quantitatively analyse alpha spectra taken from thick samples such as powder samples or filter cakes (alpha spectrometry without chemistry!).
Our scientists have decades of experience in hands-on education and training in universities and in industrial applications of
- Spectrum analysis
- Spectrometric measurements
- Applications of nuclear spectrometry
- Special nuclear measurement techniques
- Neutron activation and
Our specialists are often employed worldwide by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, Vienna) as teachers in international/national/regional training courses or for individual installations and item-specific training.
