The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) performed new standardization measurements for 64Cu. As part of this work the photon emission probabilities for the main gamma-rays and the half-life were determined using several high purity germanium (HPGe) detectors. Half-life determinations were also carried out with a NaI(Tl) well counter and two pressurized ionization chambers.
