Abstract: The present paper proposes an algorithm to improve the energy resolution of two-step cascade spectrum. The energy resolution plays an important role in the domain of gamma spectrum analysis. The better the energy resolution is, the better the ability of peak resolving is. The algorithm is constructed based on an analyze of energy resolution of the summation amplitude of coincident pulses spectrometer using the analogue technique. The algorithm proposed has been tested on some two-step cascade spectra of 164Dy nucleus obtained from the (n, ) reaction experiment using the gamma – gamma coincidence spectrometer at Dalat Nuclear Research Institute. Two-step cascade spectra corresponding to the cascade decays from the compound state to final states whose energies are 0, 74, and 242 keV have been evaluated. The results obtained show that the energy resolution of the two-step cascade spectrum has been reduced by 1.05 to 2.04 times within the energy range of 586 to 6830 keV. Our algorithm can therefore be applied to improve the ability of peak deconvolution, the accuracy, and the realibility in analyzing two-step cascade spectra.
