The branching ratio between the β- and β+/ ε decay of 74As has been measured in Ta, Al, Ge and mylar. The decay in Ge and Ta samples has also been studied at different temperatures in the range of 250 mK to 300 K. No significant dependence either on the temperature or on the host materials has been found. Our work demonstrates the inadequacy of the Debye-Hückel model in explaining similar experiments, confirming the recent results of the field.
