  2. 2. Orphan source detection in mobile gamma-ray spectrometry - Improved techniques for background assessment

    University dissertation from Division of Medical Radiation Physics, Lund University

    Author : Peder Kock; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gamma spectrometry; airborne; car-borne; radioactive; orphan sources; hypothesis testing; background radiation;

    Abstract : Hazardous radioactive sources out of regulatory control are referred to as orphan sources. Focussing on gamma-emitting orphan sources, this thesis describes methods that can be used in mobile gamma-ray spectrometry to perform real-time discrimination between an actual source signal and the signal due to the natural radiation background.

  3. 3. Methods for localizing and quantifying radionuclide sources and deposition using in situ gamma spectrometry : Critical review of the peak-to-valley method based on experimental studies and applications in Georgia and Japan

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science

    Author : Karl Östlund; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; In situ gamma spectrometry;

    Abstract : This thesis describes investigations made on mobile and stationary gammaspectrometry made both under laboratory conditions and in situ. The objective hasbeen to identify and quantify radionuclides in the form of point sources,contamination and widespread deposition in situations where the measurementgeometry is not known beforehand.
