Popis Pool-type reactors are an excellent source of high energy photons without neutrons because the water above fuel acts as an outstanding neutron shielding, whereas for high energy photons, it is nearly transparent. The absence of neutrons is a valuable property essential for testing semiconductor detectors because they are sensitive to neutrons, which might cause their damage. The high energy gammas are worth studying because they are responsible for radiation induced heating of reactor internal components in energy producing reactors, which might lead to their radiation induced damage by void swelling. At this effect, the helium produced in (n,?) reactions influenced by locally increased temperature clusters into bigger bubbles, which are increasing material volume, and therefore changing the geometry of internals. The referred method could be utilized e.g. for resource exploration by detecting prompt capture gammas. The prompt gamma field was measured at the VR-1 reactor with two different cores and water levels. The stilbene measurements showed relatively good agreement with the spectrum shape computed by MCNP6.2. An important result is a confirmation that the stilbene deconvolution matrix can be used with a rotated crystal. The testing measurement with HPGe detectors showed a possibility for measurement in such type of geometry.
