Title: Correction for intrinsic and set dead-time losses in radioactivity counting.
Authors: Wyllie, HA
Issue Date: Dec-1992
Publisher: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Abstract: Equations are derived for the determination of the intrinsic dead time of the components which precede the paralysis unit in a counting system for measuring radioactivity. The determination depends on the extension of the set dead time by the intrinsic dead time. Improved formulae are given for the dead-time correction of the count rate of a radioactive source in a single-channel system. A variable in the formulae is the intrinsic dead time which is determined concurrently with the counting of the source. The only extra equipment required in a conventional system is a scaler.
