Additional Details for "Improved Derivation of Results of D. E. Allen: Two-Count Method for Stripping Short-Lived Activity Out of an Air Sample"


W. E. Potter


Details associated with a recent article on a two-count method for stripping short-lived activity out of an air sample are discussed. This recent article gives an improved derivation for both the critical level and the detection limit; furthermore it can account for different efficiencies for the long-lived activity and the short-lived activity.


This abstract was presented at the 33rd Annual Midyear Meeting, "Instrumentation, Measurements, and Electronic Dosimetry", Laboratory Use Session, 1/30/2000 - 2/2/2000, held in Virginia Beach, VA.
