LS CountersThe CAIS has been active in LS counting research for over three decades, working with various instrument manufacturers to focus on advancements in low-level LS counting systems. Three different counter designs are now in use at the Center, including a low-background instrument that uses a pulse shape discrimination circuit to simultaneously count environmental samples for alpha and beta activities.
