Abstract
The half-life of Ti-44 has been determined with a method measuring the acti vity of Ti-44 produced and implanted in a plastic plate through the project ile fragmentation. The half-life was determined from the specific activity of implanted Ti-44 nuclei determined through absolute measurements of the a mount by counting fragments, and of their activity by taking ratios of sum- and single-peaks in high-resolution gamma -ray spectra with a Ce detector. The half-life of Ti-44 determined was 59 +/- 2 years. (C) 2001 Elsevier Sc ience B.V. All rights reserved.
