Absolute liquid scintillation counting of35S and45Ca using a modified integral counting method

Abstract

The disintegration rates of35S and45Ca samples were determined by the modified integral counting method, which extrapolates the integral count rate to the zero detection threshold of a liquid scintillation spectrometer. The agreement between the extrapolated value and the standardized disintegration rate of the sample is very satisfactory.
