1 NUCLEAR RADIATION, ITS INTERACTION WITH MATTER AND RADIOISOTOPE DECAY 17 Some of the neutrons produced would be absorbed by the 113Cd with the concomitant emission of characteristic gamma radiation. 511 MeV. In the same year Lee and Yang (1956) proposed that neutrinos and antineutrinos possessed left-handed and right-handed spins, respectively. Reverse beta decay remains an important nuclear process utilized in the measurement of solar neutrinos today (Gratta and Wang, 1999). Since its inception by Pauli in 1930 up to recent years, the neutrino or antineutrino had been thought to be almost massless or to possess a near-zero rest mass.
The linear portion of the plot has a negative slope, such as that illustrated in Fig. , 1999). Consequently, the thickness of an unknown similar material can be determined from measured intensity, I, of the transmitted beta particleradiation after placing the material between the beta particle-source and detector without altering the counting geometry. , 1995). Beta particle-transmission has many practical applications today in industrial manufacturing. , 1985). These are commonly referred to as beta transmission thickness gauges.
