DÖME Low-level counting chamber

This low-level counting chamber is an adequate tool to measure the activity of the samples after the irradiation (off-line counting) and to study other kinds of samples with low activities. The background within the chamber is about 1.12 cps. At present a HPGe detector with a relative efficiency of 13% and a Canberra DSA-2000 acquisition system are available for use. The facility is a property of the Atomic Energy Research Institute (AEKI), but operated by the our Department.
