That's why I suggested a scintillator, PMT, and SCA. The intensity of the
detected light pulses varies w/ the energy of the decay. The SCA has upper
and lower levels (a window) so only the decays of the wanted isotope,
lying in the window, are detected. Decay product events will be screened
out to a large degree.
