− In this paper the source preparation procedure for high-resolution U sources is described. This work was done in a collaboration between CIEMAT and IRMM within the frame of MetroFission, a project of the European Metrology Research Programme, in order to determine the alpha-emission probabilities of U. U was deposited from organic (iso-propanol) and inorganic (H2SO4/(NH4)2SO4, saturated NH4NO3) electrolyte solutions on metal backings. Preliminary results show that the U source quality is… CONTINUE READING
