photoelectric peak

Synonym: photopeak
Of a spectrum of @R02568@, the part of the spectral response curve corresponding to the @A00036@ in the @R05054@ by the @P04601@ of the detected γ-energy. In most cases the peak also contains events caused by multiple processes and use of the expression @F02546@ or @F02546@ is to be preferred. Synonymous with photopeak.
