Abstract

The purpose of this study was to optimize carbonate suspension counting method for the measurements of high level activity of $^{14}C$ in a reactor stack effluent gases. Although it is less sensitive method, the carbonate suspension counting method has been found to be a suitable technique for the $^{14}C$ monitoring of samples with small amount but with high specific activity and to be relatively simple and fast.
