Re: Separating out activity from gaseous residual nuclei

Dear Thomas and Joachim,

Thank you for your responses.

I have been doing post processing with the outputs of the res. nuclei
estimator for isotope production, activities, and
dose rates (mainly to look at the time evolution of activities and dose
rates) so I can do what you have suggested. Is
there a table of gamma factors for rare isotopes? Fluka must have a
list/table already, no?

Thanks and best wishes,
