Electron Microprobe Analysis of Highly Radioactive Samples

  • V. G. Scotti (a1), J. M. Johnson (a1) and R. T. Cunningham (a1)


An electron microprobe analyzer shielded and modified to accept for analysis radioactive samples reading up to 100 R/hr is described. The following features will be illustrated and discussed: (1) biological shielding, (2) detector shielding, (3) sample transfer system, (4) remote sample loading and focusing system, (5) laboratory layout, and (6) experimental results.
