A review of studies of the dead time correction on gamma-ray spectroscopy is presented. Compensate for counting losses due to system dead time is a vital step for quantitative and qualitative analysis. The gamma-ray spectroscopy system consisting of electronic devices are used for detection of radiation due to gamma rays. The dead time of the spectroscopy system is based on time limitations of these electronic devices. Firstly, a new model for determination of this electronic dead time is proposed. Secondly, two alternative methods suggested for the correction of this electronic dead-time losse.
