Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A Packard 2260 XL liquid scintillation counter was placed in an underground counting chamber to test performance under immense physical shielding. Results from the Packard 2260 XL are compared with two other counters under the same conditions, the LKB Quantulus, which has operated for two years in this laboratory, and the LKB 1219 SM, in use since January 1988.
