Could someone please tell me if a beta pancake is able to detect tritium in
any amounts? I have heard from reputable sources that it can. Obviously
the beta is too weak to be detected so as I understand it, the only way
would be to detect the bremsstrahlung radiation. Is tritium energetic
enough to produce bremsstrahlung? Can anyone tell me how much would be
needed? I apologize if this is a stupid question but nobody has totally
answered the question to my satisfaction.
