    • Abstract


      The electron capture probabilities to 690.70 and 580.37 keV levels and theK-conversion coefficients of 205.9 and 316.5 keV transitions in the decay of Ir-192 have been determined from the measurement of gamma-ray intensities in conjunction with an analysis of theKX-ray-γ-ray sum peaks observed with a co-axial HPGe detector. TheK-capture probability to 690.70 keV level was determined by an approach which is independent ofK-shell fluorescence yield and absolute detection efficiency forKX-rays. TheK-shell fluorescence yields of the daughter products, namely, Os and Pt of Ir-192 have also been determined by the same technique and were found to be 0.964±0.077 and 0.969±0.068 respectively.
