Measurement of the absolute gamma-ray emission intensities from the decay of $^{103}$Pd

Abstract

Palladium-103 is a radioisotope of interest in medical applications which is used in brachytherapy implants for the treatment of prostate cancer. It decays through electron capture to excited levels of $^{103}$Rh, and especially to the 39.756 keV metastable state. The half-life of $^{103}$Pd was measured by gamma-ray spectrometry on a HPGe detector on an aliquot of the diluted solution, for 50 days. The absolute photon emission intensities were obtained by gamma-ray spectrometry using a solution whose mass activity was obtained by liquid scintillation, using the TDCR method. The full-energy peak efficiency of the detectors were previously calibrated with LNE-LNHB standard sources. The 357-keV photon emission intensity per 100 disintegrations obtained is 0.02464(16), in perfect agreement with the tabulated data (0.0246 (6)), and with a reduced uncertainty. In addition, the emission intensities of five other gamma-rays was also derived with a significant reduction of the uncertainties.
