ABSTRACT

Objective:

To summarize the practices in measuring the gross α and gross β radioactivity in IAEA-2020-intercomparison samples, which could be expected to be beneficial to the similar analysis and research.

Methods:

With 241Am, Th, 90Sr/ 90Y, 40K and 137Cs solution as standard materials, the gross α and gross β radioactivity in water and aerosol samples were determined using thin source method. With 241Am, 40K powder as standard materials, the gross α and gross β radioactivity in water and fish samples were measured using thick source method combined with evaporation.

Results:

The result showed that the relative deviation and Z-score by using thin source method were 4.12%-31.6% and 0.14-1.71, respectively, and those from thick source combined with evaporation were 2.63%-32.5% and 0.11-0.93, respectively, with the acceptance rate being 100%.

Conclusions:

Generally, standard material shall be selected in the same types of radionuclides and energies as in samples. The thin source method is appropriate for emergency monitoring in the event of an accident. The thick source combined with evaporation should be perfered to the environmental monitoring or the analysis of unknown samples in laboratory. And then an intercomparison should be done with thin source method based on the radioactivity in samples. This work can provide a technical reference for similar measurements.
