Below is a table with the data that is to be analyzed for the mixture:
Below is the table for the pure selenium sample which was outside the aluminum cylinder
Below are the Half life plots and hte point by point ratio plots for the mixture and the pure selenium sample. Note the error in the mixture.
Nickel Foil Information
For the nickel I have been using counting statistics () to find the error in the signal. This is due to the fact that I can pin down the half life within uncertainty using this type of error.
Below is a table for the front outer nickel foil that was used in the sample.
Below is the table for the rear outer foil:
The purpose of the flux simulations is to find if the factor that makes my ratios different than Segebade's. Below is the flux through the nickel foil.
