Abstract

This work describes a new method for in situ measuring the lithium layer thickness. The method is based on the registration of the yield of 478 keV gamma-quanta of 7Li(p,p'γ)7Li reaction. The results of measuring the radial distribution of the thickness of a lithium layer thermally deposited in vacuum on a cooled copper substrate are presented. The possibility of using this method for certification of lithium targets used for boron neutron capture therapy is noted.
