Optimization of a GEM-based detector to measure tritium and discriminate against other radiation types
Tritium poses a radioprotection issue, in the Canadian Nuclear industry due to the operation of its fleet of Canadian Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) heavy water reactors. Although it is a less penetrative radionuclide, tritium ...
Dosimetric characterization of a miniature x-ray source for biophysics studies
Tritium is a low energy beta emitter that is found in abundance at CANDU nuclear power plants and is a cause of concern since it accounts for roughly thirty three percent of the total occupational exposure of nuclear ...
An experimental study of the relative response of plastic scintillators to photons and beta particles within the context of tritium monitoring
A scintillation counting system has been constructed with the use of BC-400 and EJ-212 series plastic scintillators along with a subminiature photomultiplier tube to investigate the effect of increasing plastic scintillator ...
Low energy photon mimic of the tritium beta decay energy spectrum
Tritium is a radioactive hydrogen isotope that is typically produced via neutron interaction with heavy water (D2O), producing tritiated water (DTO). As a result of this, tritium accounts for roughly a third of all ...
