    Abstract

    Auger electrons emitted after nuclear decay have potential application in targeted cancer therapy. For this purpose it is important to know the Auger electron yield per nuclear decay. In this work we measure the ratio of the number of conversion electrons (emitted as part of the nuclear decay process) and the number of Auger electrons (emitted as part of the atomic relaxation process after the nuclear decay) for the case of 125 I. Results are compared with Monte-Carlo type simulations of the relaxation cascade using the BrIccEmis code. With the appropriate choice of parameters this program describes the observed spectra quite well over the whole energy range.
