bin_screen_phot: Search for radioisotopes that dominate a specified energy bin

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/bin_screen_phot.R

Description

Search for photon emission spectra from representative radionuclides. Identify the bin of interest using E_min and E_max with optional min_prob. If minimum probability for photons in the minimized ranges is not identified, no screening will occur in the minimized ranges because the default is 100 (greater than the maximum probability of any photon).

bin_screen_phot(E_min = 0, E_max = 10, min_prob = 0,
  min_half_life_seconds = NULL, max_half_life_seconds = NULL,
  no_E_min = 0, no_E_max = 10, no_min_prob = 100, no_E_min2 = 0,
  no_E_max2 = 10, no_min_prob2 = 100)

Arguments

E_min

minimum energy in MeV, default = 0

E_max

maximum energy in MeV, default = 10

min_prob

minimum probability of selected bin with default = 0.

min_half_life_seconds

minimum half-life in seconds. Use multiplier as needed, e.g. 3 * 3600 for 3 hours. Default = NULL,

max_half_life_seconds

maximum half-life. See min_half_life_seconds.

no_E_min, no_E_min2

minimum energy in bins to minimize in MeV, default = 0

no_E_max, no_E_max2

maximum energy in bins to minimize in MeV, default = 10

no_min_prob, no_min_prob2

minimum probability to minimize with default = 100.

Value

search results in order of half-life. Recommend assigning results to a viewable object, such as 'search_results'
