Sensitivity of LDEF foil analyses using ultra-low background germanium vs. large NaI(Tl) multidimensional spectrometers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Cobalt foils and stainless steel samples were analyzed for induced {sup 6O}Co activity with both an ultra-low background germanium gamma-ray spectrometer and with a large NaI(Tl) multidimensional spectrometer, both of which use electronic anticoincidence shielding to reduce background counts resulting from cosmic rays. Aluminum samples were analyzed for {sup 22}Na. The results, in addition to the relative sensitivities and precisions afforded by the two methods, are presented.
