Abstract:

An iterative resolution- and backscattering-correction method for continuous beta-ray spectra is developed. It is based on the known graphic correction methods, and was applied to beta-ray spectra registered with a plastic scintillator. Several representations of the backscattering-tail were tried out on the beta-ray spectrum of 60Co. The correction can be performed by an ordinator with small capacity, like the IBM 1620, for beta-spectra registered in as many as 128 channels. Author
