Title: Measurement of the {sup 14}C Content in Liquid Scintillators by Means of a Small-Volume Detector in the Low-Background Chamber of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory

Abstract

A setup for measuring natural-radioactivity backgrounds and ultralow concentrations of the isotope {sup 14}C in samples of a liquid organic scintillator was created at the low-background laboratory of the Baksan Neutrino Observatory (Institute for Nuclear Research, Russian Academy of Sciences) at a depth of 4900 mwe. The concentration of the radiocarbon {sup 14C} in a sample of a scintillator based on domestically produced linear alkylbenzene was measured, and it was found that {sup 14}C/{sup 12}C (3.3 ± 0.5) × 10{sup −17}.
