Precise radon measurements are a requirement for various applications, ranging from radiation protection over environmental studies to material screening campaigns for rare-event searches. All of them ultimately depend on the availability of calibration sources with a known and stable radon emanation rate. A new approach to produce clean and dry radon sources by implantation of 226Ra ions into stainless steel has been investigated. In a proof of principle study, two stainless steel plates have…

Mitigation of 222Rn induced background in the XENON1T dark matter experiment

222Rn is a major source of background in many rare-event experiments such as the XENON1T dark matter search. The noble gas radon is created by radioactive decay inside all detector materials and
