Abstract:

A simple, fast method is described for producing iodine sources weighing a fraction of a milligram that are useful for beta counting. This method gives high chemical yields and results in uniform sources having good physical and chemical stability. The method does not give good yields with thin films suitable for 4 pi-beta counting. However the lightness, uniformity, and stability of these sources should satisfy most 4 pi-beta counting requirements. Author
