Standardisation and decay data of 177Lu and 188Re

Appl Radiat Isot. 2001 Jul;55(1):89-96. doi: 10.1016/s0969-8043(00)00362-6.

Abstract

The activity values of 177Lu and 188Re standard sources were measured using the 4pibeta-gamma-coincidence method and by liquid scintillation counting. The X- and gamma-ray emission probabilities per disintegration were determined by means of photon spectrometry with calibrated Ge and Si(Li) detectors and using the pertinent activity values. The half-lives were measured with ionization chambers, yielding T(1/2)(177Lu) = 6.646(5) d and T(1/2)(188Re) = 0.70848(9) d.
