Since the lab basically deals with Lowlevel Radioactivity Measurements (LRM), switching over to detection systems with lower eciency isn't really an option. Hence, to correct for cascade-summing is an absolute necessity. Currently, the task of calculation of coincidence correction factors is a meticulous process (mathematically speaking) and has been handled with the use of software like EFFTRAN and GESPECOR. The use of EFFTRAN has been limited to coaxial HPGe detectors and it cannot be used for well-type Ge detectors. This is where GESPECOR comes in handy, and takes over the problem.
