Uncertainty of determination of 158Tb in the RBMK nuclear reactor waste
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The activity of 158Tb was measured in waste samples from the Ignalina NPP Unit I RBMK-1500 reactor using gamma-ray spectrometry. The origin of 158Tb and the other observed gamma-ray emitters has been studied by using SCALE 6.1 modeling and comparing radionuclide ratios in the RBMK-1500 radioactive waste. The results of the calculation of the massic activity of gamma-ray emitters were used for interpretation of the total gamma-ray spectrum and the determination of 158Tb massic activity uncertainty in the waste of RBMK-1500.
