Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A computing code based on the CERN's GEANT4 has been used to compute cosmic-ray background components of low-level Ge-spectrometers, optionally equipped with an anticosmic shield made of a plastic scintillation detector. The results show that the background of the Ge detector placed at 100 m w.e. (water equivalent) has decreased by a factor of 30 and 100 without and with anticosmic shielding, respectively, when compared with a surface laboratory without anticosmic shielding.
