Abstract DYEFIC is a computer code to evaluate the beta detection efficiency of liquid scintillation counting systems with a single photomultiplier tube or two photomultipliers working in summed-coincidence mode. The measurement system is characterized by a figure of merit, the gains of the dynodes and the statistical distribution assumed for the dynodic response. Title of program: DYEFIC Catalogue Id: ADAU_v1_0 Nature of problem The measurement of beta emitters by liquid scintillation counting involves a number of processes, namely the light production, photo- electron generation and dynodic amplification, which eventually convert the energy of the particle into an electric signal at the photo- multiplier (PMT) output. In order to perform accurate standardizations of radionuclide, the propagation of the effective efficiency through the different PMT stages must be know for single PMT systems and for equipments with two ...
