Point α sources

#{name}

Alpha point sources (EAS) are in the form of a stainless steel disk, unmounted (Type C or D) or sealed on an aluminum ring (Type A or B), at the center of which the radionuclides are electroplated.

Radiological characteristics of the sources are measured with a calibrated grid cell detector.
