    • Abstract

       

      Estimates of the distortive effects of window absorption and backscattering from source backings onβ-spectra are presented as observed in the intermediate imageβ-ray spectrometer. The existence of a scatter-initiating thickness is pointed out and explained. These correction factors are applied to theβ-spectrum of Pm147 to estimate their validity.
