Abstract: This thesis presents the development of a Monte Carlo calibration of a whole body counter (WBC), consisting of four large plastic (organic) scintillators, used for determine the body burden of gamma-emitting radionuclides. A scintillator emits optical photons after energy has been deposited by an ionizing particle in the scintillator material. The optical photons are converted into an electric signal by two photomultiplier tubes (PMT) mounted on each plastic scintillator and the final output fro... more
