photon log The record of a scintillometer that has passed through a borehole. It is identical to a gamma-ray log, except that the sonde is central within the hole and therefore sensitive to the size of the borehole. (The gamma-ray sonde is held against the borehole wall and is insensitive to the size of the borehole.)
