α and β solid sources


Our α or β sources are mostly used in:

  • Laboratories (environmental measurements, process monitoring...) : calibrations and metrological verifications of alpha spectrometers using PIPS (Passivated Implanted Planar Silicon) semiconductor detectors,
  • Radiation protection : calibrations, functional checks and periodic verifications of area and air contamination monitoring devices: airborne and area monitors, alpha and beta probes, polyradiameters, hand foot monitors, whole body monitors, …,
  • Training and education : teaching how to choose the type of radiation protection probe adapted to the radiation, experimental validation of the mean free path of the charged particles in the air,
  • Security: verification of correct operation (external sources), real-time automatic correction of electronic gain of spectrometers (embedded sources).
