Coincidence summing corrections for volume samples using the PENELOPE/penEasy Monte Carlo code
Rights accessRestricted access - publisher's policy
The coincidence summing correction factors estimated with penEasy, a steering program for the Monte Carlo simulation code PENELOPE, and with penEasy-eXtended, an in-house modified version of penEasy, are presented and discussed for 152Eu and 134Cs in volume sources. The geometries and experimental data were obtained from an intercomparison study organized by the International Committee for Radionuclide Metrology (ICRM). A significant improvement in the results calculated with PENELOPE/penEasy was obtained when X-rays are included in the 152Eu simulations.
