    Research outputpeer-review


    An extension of the classical relative method of activity determination in gamma-ray spectrometry to standards that differ from the measured sample in size, density, composition and radionuclide contents is described. The approach is based on Monte Carlo simulations and was successfully tested against experimental data. An experimental verification of the approach has shown that its accuracy and precision are sufficient for application to measurements of environmental samples on p-type detectors.
