Liquid Scintillation Counting of Tritium

  • James R. Arnold

Abstract

The intensive development of the liquid scintillation counter for the measurement of tritium has come about in response to a need for a sensitive, reliable, and simple counting method for this difficult-to-measure nuclide. A number of groups participated in this development, but the workers at Los Alamos deserve special mention [1, 2]. Our own work [3] has been almost entirely with C14, although the instrument is the same.
