This work describes the procedure followed by the Laboratório de Metrologia Nuclear (LMN) for the standardization of (55)Fe by the tracing method. This technique was applied using two radionuclides, which decay by the electron capture process followed by a prompt gamma-ray, namely (51)Cr and (54)Mn, as tracers. The calibration was performed in a(More)
In this paper results of X-ray and gamma-ray emission probabilities per decay of (51)Cr and (241)Am are presented. The measurements were carried out by means of HPGe planar and REGe spectrometers. The activity of (51)Cr and (241)Am samples was determined in a 4pibeta-gamma coincidence counting system. The HPGe spectrometers were calibrated in a well defined(More)
This work presents the results of the determination of uranium concentration in the most commonly used phosphate fertilizers employed in Brazilian agricultural land. The technique employed was the nuclear fission track registration in plastic foils of Makrofol KG (dry method), together with a discharge chamber system for track counting. Phosphate fertilizer(More)
A series of (123)I measurements have been carried out in a 4π(e(A),X)-γ coincidence system. The experimental extrapolation curve was determined and compared to Monte Carlo simulation, performed by code ESQUEMA. From the slope of the experimental curve, the total conversion coefficient for the 159 keV total gamma transition, α(159), was determined. All(More)
The measurement of the gamma-ray emission probabilities per decay of 1077 keV of (68)Ga is presented. The standardization system consists of a gas-flow proportional counter in 4π geometry coupled to an HPGe detector for the gamma-ray detection. The gamma-ray emission probabilities per decay were measured in an HPGe gamma-ray spectrometer. The weaker(More)
The procedure followed by the Nuclear Metrology Laboratory (LMN) at the IPEN for the standardization of activity of 64Cu is described. The measurement was carried out in a 4π (PC) β-γ coincidence system. The activity per unit mass of the solution was determined by the extrapolation technique. The events were registered using a Time to Amplitude Converter(More)
The standardization of 241 Am solution has been undertaken using a 4pibeta-gamma coincidence system. The 4pi proportional counter used for alpha detection has a 0.1 mm thick Al window in the outside wall in order to minimize gamma-ray attenuation. The extrapolation technique was applied to determine the activity of the solution. The variation of alpha(More)
The k(0) method for quantitative reactor neutron activation analysis (NAA) has been applied in several laboratories for the determination of multi-elemental concentrations in different materials. The general formula that yields the concentration value can be divided in two parts: one involving detection parameters and the other involving irradiation(More)
The procedure for the standardization of (59)Fe using a 4π(PC)β-γ software coincidence system is described. The standardization was performed with an experimental setup consisting of a thin window gas-flow proportional counter (PC) in 4π geometry coupled to a NaI(Tl) scintillator and to a HPGe detector. The data acquisition was carried out by means of a(More)
An international Key Comparison of (177)Lu has recently been carried out. Twelve laboratories performed assays for radioactivity content on aliquots of a common master solution of (177)Lu, leading to eleven results submitted for entry into the Key Comparison Database of the Mutual Recognition Arrangement. A proposed Comparison Reference Value (CRV) was(More)
