Theoretical response of a ZnS(Ag) scintillation detector to alpha-emitting sources and suggested applications.

Abstract

The classic problem of alpha absorption is discussed in terms of the quantitative determination of the activity of "weightless" alpha sources and the specific alpha activity of extended sources accounting for absorption in the source medium and the window of a large area ZnS(Ag) scintillation detector. The relationship for the expected counting rate gamma… (More)
