Linearization of the Static Characteristics of a Radioisotope Density Meter

  • A. M. VodovozovEmail author

The task of linearizing the characteristics of a radioisotope measuring device is considered. The process of nonlinear transformation of a stream of pulses with a Poisson distribution is analyzed. A method for the synthesis of the transformation function of a radioisotope device, taking into account the distribution law of the data signal, is proposed. The general formulas and methods for linearizing the calibration characteristic of radioisotope measuring devices are obtained. The results were used to linearize the characteristic of an albedo radioisotope density meter.
