Title: New Spherial Gamma-ray and Neutron Emitting Sources for Testing of Radiation detection Instruments
Published: November 30, 2009
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technololgy (NIST) developed new gamma-ray and neutron emitting sources for testing radiation detection systems. These sources were developed for testing of detecstion systems in mairitime a pplications. This requires special source characteristics.
