Time-interval analysis of beta decay Academic Article uri icon


  • A time-interval method of beta-decay half-life analysis is described. The method is expected to produce results that are highly accurate (for the given number of events analyzed), regardless of the event rate, nature of the detection-system dead time, and/or extent of the dead time. This was verified by applying the method in a systematic way to an array of simulated data sets characterized by typical as well as extreme combinations of simulation parameters. The results of the analysis are presented and discussed. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
