Title: NaI Measurements of Plutonium & Other Sources with the INL Coin

This report is a presentation for the NEOD training course at SNL. Its purpose is to summarize the effects of the INL coin on gamma ray spectra for 60Co, 137Cs, and plutonium. Spectra recorded with and without the INL Coin illustrate how transmission plays a role in the dose-ratio factors written on the coin.
