DEAD TIME MEASUREMENT BY TWO-SOURCE METHOD – OPTIMIZATION OF MEASUREMENT TIME DIVISION


Abstract

The article presents the analysis of the dead time measurement using two sources for a non-paralyzable detector. It determined the optimum division of count rate measurement time between both source measurement and a single source one. Results of the work can be used to optimize dead time measurement for systems which count photons or particles.
