Project: A critical study of existing and newly introduced standard materials for the calibration of the fission-track dating method
- project duration
- 01-JAN-03 – 31-DEC-05
- This project intends a thorough study of recently introduced apatite age standard sand of uranium-doped glass monitors produced by the Institute for Reference Materials and Methods of the EC for the determination of the thermal neutron fluence. The investigations involve age determinations using absolute calibration, a study of uranium homogeneity and a track size analysis focussed on thermal stability.
