Project Status: WIP – Initial development is in progress, but there has not yet been a stable, usable release suitable for the public. lifecycle



gamma is intended to process in-situ gamma-ray spectrometry measurements for luminescence dating. This package allows to import, inspect and (automatically) correct the energy scale of the spectrum. It provides methods for estimating the gamma dose rate by the use of a calibration curve. This package only supports Canberra CNF and TKA files.


Install the development version from GitHub with:


A Shiny application provides an exhanced graphical user interface:

Or, if you need a more reproducible workflow:

## Calibrate the energy scale
calib <- calibrate_energy(spectrum, peaks)

## Inspect results
plot(calib, xaxis = "energy", yaxis = "rate")
