Abstract : This report presents the results of a measurement of the half-life of tritium by absolute counting. The method consisted in the mass-spectrometric analysis of a hydrogen-tritium mixture enriched in tritium, the dilution of some of this material with hydrogen in a known way to a countable level of activity, and the counting of a portion of the diluted gas in a Geiger counter of known effective volume.
