Every good health physicist knows that Sm-147 is radioactive, makes up
15% of natural samarium, and emits a 2.25 MeV alpha.  Question can this
energy alpha be surveyed with reasonable efficiency with typical alpha
survey instruments?  Kindly send responses directly to Max Scott

At the following address:  lscott6 at lsu.edu

Thanks in advance
