Abstract This version includes new aspects that improve the computation of the counting efficiency for each one of the three available atomic rearrangement detection models (i.e., KLM, KL_1 L_2 L_3 M and KLMN). The first modification involves a correction algorithm that simulates the non-linear response of the detector to photoionization for low-energy X-ray photons. Although this correction has the inconvenience of substantially increasing the number of atomic rearrangement detection pathways, the co... Title of program: EMILIA Catalogue Id: ADWK_v1_0 Nature of problem The determination of radioactivity in liquid samples of electron-capture nuclides is demanded in radiation physics, radiation protection, dosimetry, radiobiology and nuclear medicine. The CIEMAT/NIST method has proved to be suitable for radionuclide standardizations when the counting efficiency of the liquid-scintillation spectrometer is sufficiently high. Although the method has widely been applied to beta-ray nuclides, its applicability to electron-capture nuclides nowadays has not the require ...
