31. Characterization of a 6Li-loaded liquid organic scintillator for fast neutron spectrometry and thermal neutron detection
Topic: Radiation Physics
Published: 3/24/2013
Authors: Jeffrey S Nico, C. D. Bass, E J Beise, Craig Heimbach, T. Langford
Abstract: We present the characterization of a liquid scintillator incorporating an aqueous solution of enriched lithium chloride to produce a scintillator with 0.40% 6Li. We report on its performance in terms of optical properties and neutron response. We inc ...

35. Standardization of Broadband UV Measurements
Topic: Radiation Physics
Published: 1/1/2013
Author: George P Eppeldauer
Abstract: The CIE standardized rectangular-shape UV response functions can be realized only with large spectral mismatch errors. The spectral power-distribution of UV sources is not standardized. Accordingly, the readings of different types of UV meters, even ...

37. Testing Three-body Quantum Electrodynamics with Trapped Ti-20 Ions: Evidence for a Z-Dependent Divergence between Experiment and Calculation
Topic: Radiation Physics
Published: 10/10/2012
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, C T Chantler, Mark N. Kinnane, John D Gillaspy, A.T. Payne, L F Smale, Albert Henins, Joseph N Tan, J A Kimpton, E Takacs, K Makonyi, Joshua M Pomeroy
Abstract: We report the measurement of the w (1s2p 1P1 ! 1s2 1S0) resonance line transition energy in helium-like titanium. Our result, 4749.85(7) eV, deviates from the most recent ab initio prediction by three times our experimental uncertainty and by many ...

39. Justification of Shielding Requirements for Plutonium Sources
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1758
Topic: Radiation Physics
Published: 9/12/2012
Authors: Leticia S Pibida, Michael P Unterweger
Abstract: This report provides a justification for shielding plutonium sources when testing radiation detection instruments against standard performance requirements and test methods. The use of copper as a shielding material is proposed to provide compara ...
