Abstract

Some developments in the design of 4 {pi} GM counters are reported and applications of these counters in the measurements of radioactive standards, in relation to radiological work, are discussed. In the two types of 4 {pi} GM counter described the anode wires can be easily removed thereby facilitating cleaning. One type has been used successfully for several years in the standardization of {beta}-emitting radioactive nuclides and some results of intercomparison s of standards with other laboratories are presented. These counters have also been applied, in conjunction with a {gamma} ionization system, in determinations of the specific {gamma}-ray emission (k-factor) for Fe{sup 59}, Cs{sup 137} and Ir{sup 192}. The second type is a smaller low-background version of the above counter, constructed in stainless steel and designed primarily for the assay of small amounts of radioactivity in biological materials. It can also be adapted for the absolute measurement of radioactive sources at low counting rates {<=} 100 counts per minute) since, when shielded with cosmic-ray counters in anti-coincidence, a stable background of between 1 and 2 counts per minute can be obtained.

(author) [French] Les auteurs decrivent certains perfectionnement s dans la construction de compteurs 4 {pi} GM et discutent les utilisations de ces compteurs pour la mesure d'etalons radioactifs, en relation avec les recherches radiologiques. Les filaments anodiques des deux types de compteurs 4 {pi} GM decrits peuvent etre facilement enleves, ce qui facilite le nettoyage. L'un des types a ete utilise avec succes durant plusieures annees pour l'etalonnage de nuclides {beta} actifs; les auteurs presentent les resultats des comparaisons d'etalons faites avec d'autres laboratoires. Ce type de compteur a ete egalement utilise pour la determination du facteur k (emission {gamma} specifique) de Fe{sup 59}, Cs{sup 137} et Ir{sup 182}. Le second type de compteurs est une version reduite, a faible mouvement propre, du premier. Construit en acier inoxidable, il a ete initialement concu pour l'essai de faibles activites dans les materiaux biologiques. Il peut cependant etre adapte a la mesure absolue de sources de faible niveau d'activite ( {<=} 100 cpm) car, avec une gaine de compteurs cosmiques en anticoincidence son mouvement propre s'abaisse jusqu'a 1-2 cpm. (author) [Spanish] Los autores dan cuenta de algunos perfeccionamiento s introducidos en la construccion de contadores Geiger-Mueller 4 {pi} y estudian las aplicaciones de estos aparatos en la medicion de patrones radiactivos utilizados en trabajos de radiologia. En los dos modelos de contadores Geiger-Mueller 4 {pi} que los autores describen los alambres anodicos pueden desmontarse facilmente, lo cual facilita su limpieza. Uno de los modelos de contadores se viene utilizando con exito desde hace varios anos para normalizar radionuclidos {beta}; se exponen algunos resultados de las comparaciones efectuadas con los patrones de otros laboratorios. Estos contadores tambien se han empleado, en combinacion con un dispositivo de ionizacion {gamma}, para determinar la emision {gamma} especifica (factor k) del Fe{sup 59}, Cs{sup 137} y Ir{sup 192}. El segundo modelo, de acero inoxidable, es una copia del primero, en menor escala; esta disenado para trabajar con bajas actividades ambiente y se destina principalmente a la determinacion cuantitativa de pequenas cantidades de substancias radiactivas contenidas en materiales biologicos. Tambien puede adaptarse para la medicion absoluta de fuentes radiactivas de bajo indice de recuento ({<=} 100 impulsos por minuto), pues si se le rodea de contadores de rayos cosmicos, montados en anticoincidencia , es posible estabilizar la actividad de fondo en 1 a 2 impulsos por minuto.
