Abstract: A collection of high resolution gamma-ray spectra from well-characterized Pu certified reference materials has been recorded using a coaxial HPGe detector in the energy range up to 2.8 MeV. The spectra were measured for long acquisition times, ensuring very good counting statistics. The experimental setup assures that the measurement geometry is stable and reproducible, and that the spectra have minimum influence from background radiation and pile-up effects. The spectra will fill a gap in the data library of the International working group on gamma spectroscopy techniques for U and Pu isotopics. They can be used for testing different software algorithms for spectrum evaluation. They will also serve for comparison with spectra taken by medium-resolution detectors.
