Radionuclide analyses on environmental samples, industrial products and waste

As a service for industry, research institutes and authorities, working group "Environmental radioactivity" offers the performance of radionuclide analyses on the most different materials. The following list gives a brief selection:

  • specific 210Pb activity in lead
  • radioactive impurities in detector materials
  • radioactive impurities in semiconductor materials
  • radionuclides in construction materials
  • specific activity of artificial nuclides in scrap material
  • radium contents in residues of natural oil production
  • radium contents in residues of phosphate production
  • specific activity of natural nuclides in luminophors

Details such as detection limits, measurement uncertainties etc. can be taken from the "List of measuring and calibration capabilities of PTB".
