Assessment of natural radioactivity in the environment using gamma spectrometry is common method. NaI (Tl) detectors and HPGe detectors are used for gamma spectrometry in general. The recent arrival of Lanthanum Halide detectors have better resolution compared to NaI (Tl) detectors. In the present work, the performance of Lanthanum Chloride (LaCl 3 ) detector for the natural radioactivity estimation is studied and compared with NaI (Tl) and HPGe detectors.
