2. A New Primary Standardization of Th-229
Published: 1/7/2010
Authors: Ryan P Fitzgerald, Lizbeth Laureano-Perez, Michelle M. Hammond, Leticia S Pibida, Svetlana Nour, Brian Edward Zimmerman
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has certified a high-purity Th-229 Standard Reference Material as SRM 4328C, based on live-timed 4-pi alpha,beta-gamma anticoincidence counting (LTAC) of the equilibrium solution. The LTAC sy ...

3. An Automated Ionization Chamber for Secondary Radioactivity Standards
Published: 12/8/2009
Author: Ryan P Fitzgerald
Abstract: We report on the operation and characterization of a new ionization chamber system, called AUTOIC, featuring a commerical digital electrometer and a commerical robotic sample changer. The ralative accuracy of the electrometer was improved significan ...

4. Charged-Particle Thermonuclear Reaction Rate Evaluation for A=12-40 Nuclei: I. Monte Carlo Method and Statistical Distributions
Published: 4/28/2010
Authors: Ryan P Fitzgerald, R Longland, C. Iliadis, E. Champagne, J.R. Newton, C. Ugalde
Abstract: A new method based on Monte Carlo techniques is presented for evaluating thermonuclear reaction rates. We begin by reviewing commonly applied procedures and point out that reaction rates that have been reported up to now in the literature have no rig ...

5. Charged-Particle Thermonuclear Reaction Rates: II. Tables and Graphs of Reaction Rates and Probability Density Functions.
Published: 4/9/2010
Authors: C. Iliadis, R Longland, A E Champagne, A. Coc, Ryan P Fitzgerald
Abstract: Numerical values of charged-particle thermonuclear reaction rates for nuclei in the A=14-40 region are tabulated. The results are obtained using a method, based on Monte Carlo techniques, that has been described in the preceding paper of this series ...

7. Half-life Measurements of Sr82
Published: 1/30/2009
Authors: Leticia S Pibida, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Michael P Unterweger, Michelle M. Hammond, Daniel B. Golas
Abstract: Half-life measurements of 82Sr were performed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) using gamma-ray spectrometry and a 4 pressurized ionization chamber. The 82Sr half-life was determined to be 25.36 &plu ...

8. Investigation into the Standardization of Tc-99
Published: 7/30/2010
Authors: Lizbeth Laureano-Perez, Ronald Colle, Ryan P Fitzgerald, Brian Edward Zimmerman, Lonnie Talmadge Cumberland
Abstract: The standardization of 99Tc by several primary methods was investigated. This was performed to support a new 99Tc transfer standard that has been developed and will be disseminated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as Stan ...

9. Look at Data to Evaluate Uncertainty: A comment on "Uranium Assay Determination...." by Mathew et al.
Published: 2/25/2010
Author: Ryan P Fitzgerald
Abstract: According to the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM), the evaluation of uncertainty should be based as much as possible on observed data. In a recent paper, Mathew et al. detailed, for a specific titration-based assay of urani ...

10. NIST Ionization Chamber "A" Sample-Height Corrections
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 117.003
Published: 2/2/2012
Author: Ryan P Fitzgerald
Abstract: For over 30 years scientists in the NIST radioactivity group have been using their ionization chamber ,AŠ to make measurements of radioactivity and radioactive half-lives. We now have evidence that some of those reported measurements were incorre ...
