Radiometric study of soil: the systematic effects
(University of the Western Cape, 2007)
The natural 238U, 232Th and 40K radioactive content of vineyard soil was measured with an in-situ gamma-ray detector. The activity concentrations measured with the in-situ detector are normalized using the laboratory-determined ...
Determination of the photopeak detection efficiency of a HPGe detector, for volume sources, via Monte Carlo simulations
(University of the Western Cape, 2005)
The Environmental Radioactivity Laboratory (ERL) at iThemba LABS undertakes experimental work using a high purity germanium (HPGe) detector for laboratory measurements. In this study the Monte Carlo transport code, MCNPX, ...
