Beta Particle Standard - Type MF2 "Scatterless"Request a quotation
Beta Particle Standards — Type MF2
This is a “scatterless” configuration in which the activity is applied as a 0.12” (3 mm) spot centered between two laminated 0.9 mg/cm² aluminized Mylar foils. The source is supplied in a removable aluminum holder. In the holder the source has an overall diameter of 1” (25.4 mm) and a thickness of 0.125” (3.18 mm). Out of the holder the source is 0.937” (23.8 mm) in diameter with a thickness of approximately 0.030” (0.76 mm).
This configuration is most useful for the precise determination of G.M. and proportional counter efficiencies, and as an educational tool for the verification of the inverse square law, as well as demonstrating back-scatter phenomena.
Additional beta sources can be found on pages 55–65 including disk standards suitable for use with low background counting systems and 3.94” x 3.94” (100 mm x 100 mm) distributed beta sources for instrument calibration and dose assessments.
