Abstract: The accurate measurement of small electrical currents is essential for the measurement of ionizing radiation as generated by radionuclides. VSL has been involved in the work conducted by IRMM in support of the CCRI(II) Working Group on Realization of the Becquerel, whose objective is the development of a reproducible ionization chamber that could ultimately replace the ‘Système International de Référence’ (SIR), operated by the BIPM and ensuring traceability to the derived SI unit becquerel for gamma-ray emitting radionuclides, by a worldwide distributed radioactivity standard.
