Abstract
An approach for preparation of short-lived a sources of energy 6.0 MeV and 7.69 MeV is proposed. The sources are prepared by taking a sample of Rn-222 progeny on an a spectrometric filler. The activities (or related parameters) of Po-218, Pb-214 and Bi-214 at the end of sampling are precisely determined by a reference measurement with an a spectrometer. Further they are used as input values to calculate with a sufficient precision the number of emitted a particles of any energy and at any time interval of interest. Theoretical modelling and experimental results demonstrated that such sources could be prepared with a sufficient purity. There is a potential for the number of a particles emitted in a given time interval to be certified with an accuracy of 1-2%.
