Abstract

The authors describe a method for measurement of bremsstrahlung spectra of relativistic electrons in single crystals by a total-absorption spectrometer based on a NaI(Tl) scintillator with a diameter and height of 200 mm installed in the beam of gamma radiation. The range of photon energies is 1-300 MeV. A method is proposed for realization of single passage of electrons through a thin target by means of a scraper. The results of measurements of spectra from amorphous targets and a silicon crystal are provided.
