Intercomparison of methods for coincidence summing corrections in gamma-ray spectrometry
A comparison of the coincidence summing correction methods is presented. Since there are several ways for computing these corrections, each method has advantages and drawbacks that could be compared. This part of the comparison was restricted to point sources. The same experimental spectra, decay scheme and photon emission intensities were used by all the participants. The results were expressed as coincidence summing correction factors for several energies of 152Eu and 134Cs, and three source-to-detector distances. They are presented and discussed.
