Title: Complete ? -decay pattern for the high-priority decay-heat isotopes I 137 and Xe 137 determined using total absorption spectroscopy

We measured the complete -decay intensities of 137I and 137Xe with the Modular Total Absorption Spectrometer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We describe a novel technique for measuring the -delayed neutron energy spectrum, which also provides a measurement of the -neutron branching ratio, P n.
