Technical Data

Scintillation detectors offered include 1″x1″, 2″x2″ & 3″x3″ NaI integral assemblies with built-in pre-amplifiers. These detector assemblies give excellent stability, superior performance & good resolution in the range of 8.0 to 9.5% for Cs-137. Scintillation detectors of other sizes can be offered against user specific requirements also.

Gamma Reference Standard Set Type: GS290 consists of a set of FIVE Gamma sources evaporated & sealed on 25mm dia x 5mm plastic disc covering SIX photopeak energies in the range of 3 to 5 micro curie. A reference chart for this is given below. The accuracy of these sources is in the range of +/-10%. All these dics sources are enclosed in a box made of acrylic sheet and supplied.

Note : BRIT is not able to supply this Mn-54 at present. In view of this we are able to give only 5 sources in the Gamma Reference set.
