The use of promethium-147 beta backscattering to measure the thickness of plastic coatings on copper was determined. Backscattering radiation was also used to determine the structure and surface composition of copper specimens. A preliminary study of the use of beta-particle backscattering and beta-particle-induced X-rays for measuring corrosion is described.
