(2017): Study of particular problems appearing in NORM samples and recommendations for best practice gamma-ray spectrometry
APPL RADIAT ISOTOPES. 2017; 126: 285-288. FullText FullText_BOKU

In this paper spectral interference effects for selected gamma-emitting radionuclides of the natural decay series and K-40 in selected NORM samples are studied. Recommendations for the choice of gamma-lines and the consideration of possible spectral interferences are provided. Special attention is given to the radon tightness of the sample containers. A simple and sensitive method for the estimation of the Rn-222 leakage of sample containers is introduced. The applied polystyrene sample containers show Rn-222 leakages lower than 1%.
