In situ gamma spectroscopy measurement of 41Ar during neutron
Date of Publication
In situ gamma spectroscopy was used to measure 41Ar released into the laboratory due to the activation of air in their radiation tubes of SLOWPOKE reactor during routine neutron activation analysis. The data obtained were used to predict the 41Ar distribution in the laboratory for various operating conditions of the reactor. The dose received by the analyst from the immersion in 41Ar was calculated to be 2.36 m microSv gammar (-1), which is approximately 1 % of the normal background exposure.....
