Abstract

The activity measurement of a solution of $^{133}Ba$ which is an electron capture nuclide was carried out by the ${\beta}-{\gamma}$ coincidence method. The counting rates at the ${\beta}-,\;{\gamma}-$, and coincidence-channels were measured using a $4{\pi}$ proportional counter and two NaI(Tl) scintillation detectors. The specific activity of the solution calculated by the efficiency extrapolation was $(1151.01{\pm}2.99)kBqg^{-1}$ at the reference time(00h UT, 03-15-84). According to an international comparison of activity measurements organized by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures, this result showed the difference of 0.94% to the mean value derived from the comparison.
