Further test of internal-conversion theory with a measurement in Pt-197 Academic Article uri icon


  • We have measured the K-shell internal conversion coefficient, K, for the 346.5-keV M4 transition in Pt197 to be 4.23(7). This result differs from a previous value, which disagreed significantly from theory. Our new value agrees well with Dirac-Fock calculations and removes the earlier discrepancy as a source of concern. 2009 The American Physical Society.
