Determination of surface-bound <Superscript>228</Superscript><Superscript> </Superscript>Th and <Superscript>226</Superscript>Ra on hardware associated with neutral current detector deployment at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory

  • J. B. Wilhelmy


A sensitive system for the determination of surface-bound thorium and uranium on detector components and deployment hardware associated with the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory is described. The method involves assay for <Superscript>224</Superscript>Ra and <Superscript>226</Superscript>Ra in ultra-pure water used to leach the component under test.
