|Abstract:||A software package is presented to calculate the total counting efficiency for the decay of radionuclides in a well-type gamma-ray detector. It is specifically applied to primary standardisation of activity by means of 4-pi-gamma-counting with a NaI(Tl) well-type scintillation detector. As an alternative to Monte Carlo simulations, the software combines good accuracy with superior speed and ease-of-use. It is also well suited to investigate uncertainties associated with the 4-pi-gamma-counting method for a variety of radionuclides and detector dimensions. In this paper, the underlying analytical models for the radioactive decay and subsequent counting efficiency of the emitted radiation in the detector are summarised.|
