How to solve the problem? 1 to several nanoseconds, but the technique is very simple (Fig. 3). Positrons are emitted from the radioisotope 22 Na implanted into the sample material. 28 MeV g ray that is emitted simultaneously with the positron is used to define the time of ‘birth’ (start) of the positron, and one of the Part I 27 Ito γ ray e+ γ ray FIG. 1.

Third, the sensitivity of measurement can be enhanced as required, without using excessive analyte concentrations, by providing a correspondingly large specific activity of the radioindicator. Moreover, the matrix background does not interfere, since it is not activated. Mixtures of coarse grain sand and either iron granulate or hydroxy apatite were prepared and transferred into polyethylene columns of 10 cm inner diameter and a height of 20 cm (Fig. 1). 8 mg/mL) doped with 237U as a radioindicator was pumped at a constant flow rate through the Column Sorbent Analyser Lead collimator Flow direction How to solve the problem?

In the field of ultra-trace analysis of radioisotopes, the radiometrical determination of low concentrations of a and b emitters can have severe limitations: interferences from other radionuclides may exist, and the level of detection is dependent on the lifetime. For isotopes with long half-lives, measuring times of the order of up to a few days are often required, which might not be acceptable, for example in the event of an emergency. Here selective atom counting of the individual species of interest using laser mass spectrometric techniques has a number of advantages.
