Abstract

The half-life of 66Ga, an isotope very important for high-energy efficiency calibration of γ-detectors, has been measured using γ-spectroscopy. In order to reduce systematic uncertainties, different source production methods and γ-counting conditions have been applied. A half-life value of t 1/2=(9.312±0.032)h has been obtained in agreement with a recent measurement but in contradiction with some of the earlier results.
