Abstract

This paper describes a method for localization of a small radioactive source in a large medium. The method is based on calibration of various points in the medium with several detectors and using the count-rates of the various detectors as components of a vector. The unknown source vector is compared to all the vectors of the calibration (library) by vector analysis.
