Abstract

A Packard 2260 XL liquid scintillation counter was placed in an underground counting chamber to test performance under immense physical shielding. Results from the Packard 2260 XL are compared with two other counters under the same conditions, the LKB Quantulus, which has operated for two years in this laboratory, and the LKB 1219 SM, in use since January 1988.
