Ryan P. Fitzgerald, Denis E. Bergeron, Dean G. Jarrett, Neil M. Zimmerman, Carine Michotte, Hansjoerg Scherer, Stephen Giblin, Steven Judge
Re-entrant ionization chambers (ICs) are essential to radionuclide metrology and nuclear medicine for maintaining standards and measuring half-lives. Metrology

Non-fuel Antineutrino Contributions in the High Flux Isotope Reactor

Author(s)
PROSPECT COLLABORATION, Jerome J. LaRosa, Hans P. Mumm, Svetlana Nour, Mark A. Tyra, Denis E. Bergeron
Reactor neutrino experiments have seen major improvements in precision in recent years. With the experimental uncertainties starting to surpass those from

Primary standardization of Ra-224 activity by liquid scintillation counting

Author(s)
Denis E. Bergeron, Jeffrey T. Cessna, Ryan P. Fitzgerald, Brian E. Zimmerman, Lizbeth Laureano-Perez, Ronald Colle, Leticia S. Pibida, Elisa Napoli
A standard for 224Ra activity has been developed, based on triple-to-double coincidence ratio (TDCR) liquid scintillation (LS) counting. The standard was

Standardization of I-124 by three liquid scintillation-based methods

Author(s)
Denis E. Bergeron, Leticia S. Pibida, Brian E. Zimmerman, Jeffrey T. Cessna, Ryan P. Fitzgerald
A solution of 124I was standardized for activity by 4πβ(LS)-γ(NaI) live-timed anticoincidence (LTAC) counting, with confirmatory measurements by triple-to

Standardization of 64Cu activity

Author(s)
Denis E. Bergeron, Jeffrey T. Cessna, Ryan P. Fitzgerald, Leticia S. Pibida, Brian E. Zimmerman
The complex decay scheme that makes 64Cu promising as both an imaging and therapeutic agent in medicine also makes the absolute measurement of its activity
