Calibration of scintillation counters with allowance for scattered radiation

  • M. B. Vasil'ev


A method is described for calibrating scintillation counters which takes scattered radiation into consideration. Buildup factors for the reflection of radiation from a radium source, and analytic approximations to them, were determined. The formula obtained for the total intensity of direct and scattered ψ-rays gives a calibration curve unperturbed by scattered radiation when used for the calibration of scintillation counters.
