Abstract

The analysis of thorium in the workplace can be achieved using a variety of metrological techniques. The uncertainties on the final measured values will include components that arise from the uncertainties in the nuclear data that are used. These data include half-lives, branching ratios and gamma-ray emission probabilities. It is important that a common, consistent and reliable data set is used in order to minimise the potential differences between analytical results. With particular reference to the problems associated with thorium analysis, some of the various sources of nuclear data are discussed and a recommended set of data is proposed.
