Abstract: Zero discrimination level setting of liquid scintillation systems for counting of all single photoelectron pulses is required by both triple-to-double coincidence ratio (TDCR) and CIEMAT/NIST methods. However, this requirement may not be able to be met in some circumstances. The influence of rejection of a fraction of the single photoelectron peak has been studied both theoretically and experimentally on 3H, 63Ni, 14C and 90Sr/90Y for both the TDCR and CIEMAT/NIST methods. A modified formula for calculation of efficiency is given in consideration of the rejected fraction of the single photoelectron peak. © 2006, Elsevier Ltd.
