Dear Sir,

Having a very sharp peak would imply that the detector is very (if not, almost 100% percent) good in its energy resolution. This may be true for Germanium/Silicon detectors. But I am using a Sodium Iodide Detector which has 8 to 10 % energy resolution. So in one way, I expect to obtain a gaussin-like curve in the Histogram.

I supposed that one needs the area of the fitted gaussian-like curve in order to calculate the FWHM and to obtain the energy resolution of the constructed detector? (i.e., say a cylindrical Sodium Iodide Detector)

What about the energy fluctuation during the detection? How does one simulate this fluctuation so that he can obtain a gaussian like curve?

Thank you again....
