Abstract:

The Automated Radioxenon SamplerAnalyzer ARSA developed at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty CTBT measures four radioxenon isotopes, 131mXe, 133mXe, 133gXe, and 135gXe. The system produces three sample histograms and three background histograms daily. The analysis of the sample histograms in conjunction with the background histograms is accomplished with a data analyzer that displays various one- and two-dimensional beta-gamma histograms. It also calculates the radioxenon concentrations and the minimum-detectable- concentrations MDC for each sample. This paper will describe the software program along with data formats, various software controllable parameters, and calculations.
