Title: DEVELOPMENT OF A TRITIUM IMPREGNATED METAL FOR USE AS THE ACTIVATOR IN A SELF-LUMINOUS PHOSPHOR AND FOR USE AS AN IONIZATION SOURCE. Period covered May 15, 1955 to September 15, 1956

Abstract

A description of the methods and equipment used in the preparation of tritiated foils is presented. The results of the experimental studies indicate that maximum beta emission is obtained from extremely thin layers of titanium tritide which have been prepared on the surface of sandblasted stainless steel backing foils. Phosphor response studies have indicated that the main factors effecting the response of ZnS type phosphors to tritium beta radiation are (a) phosphor particle size (b) type and concentration of activator and (c) cadinium content. Six research models of tritium foil-activated self-luminous sources have been prepared for submission to WAEC. A description of the research models is provided. (auth)
