The methodology recently developed by the Nuclear Metrology Laboratory (LMN) from IPEN, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for simulating all detection processes in a 4pi(betaX)gamma coincidence system by means of the Monte Carlo technique is described. This procedure makes possible to predict the behavior of the observed activity as a function of the 4pibeta detector efficiency. The present paper describes its application to the standardization of a typical beta-gamma radionuclide, namely 134Cs. In this… CONTINUE READING
