IEC 62372:2021 is applicable to housed scintillators for registration and spectrometry of alpha-, beta-, gamma-, X-ray and neutron radiation. This document specifies the requirements for the testing equipment and test methods of the basic parameters, of housed scintillators, such as:
- the direct method is applicable to measure the light output of housed scintillators based on scintillation material. The housed scintillators certified by this method can be used as working standard of housed scintillators (hereinafter: working standard) when performing measurements by a relative method of comparison.
- the relative method of comparison with the working standard is applicable to housed scintillators based on the same scintillation material as the working standard.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2006. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- Title has been modified.
- To review the existing requirements and to update the terminology, definitions and normative references.
