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 ...
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 ...
