This paper describes a new approach in evaluating the surface beta contamination using the direct method of measurement. It makes use of previous results obtained in numerical modeling of electron transport in planar geometry and is mainly based on the estimation of the efficiency of contamination sources for beta radiation and its standard uncertainty using the available information concerning the component materials of the sources and their main parameters. Experimental results illustrate the appropriateness of the new approach for surface beta contamination measurements. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Abstract

This paper describes a new approach in evaluating the surface beta contamination using the direct method of measurement. It makes use of previous results obtained in numerical modeling of electron transport in planar geometry and is mainly based on the estimation of the efficiency of contamination sources for beta radiation and its standard uncertainty using the available information concerning the component materials of the sources and their main parameters. Experimental results illustrate the appropriateness of the new approach for surface beta contamination measurements. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd
