Abstract

The use of proportional gas detectors for determination of the alpha ($\alpha$) and beta ($\beta$) dose-rate (due to U, Th and K) of pottery and sediment samples in luminescence and E.S.R. dating was investigated. Alpha and beta count-rate measurements on standard powders of U, Th and K at two different counter voltages, low voltage in which the system detects $\alpha$ particles only and high voltage in which the system can detect and distinguish between both $\alpha$ and $\beta$ particles using differeni pulse height regions, allow the determination of conversion coefficients that relate count-rates to dose-rates in samples. The conversion coefficients were applied to the $\alpha$ and $\beta$ count-rates measured on different types of test samples. Analysis of the results shows a remarkable accuracy in the evaluation of the $\beta$ dose-rates. However, under both measurement conditions (low and high voltage), the alpha dose-rates were found to deviate from the expected values to the extent that this procedure must be considered unusable at present.
