Summary

The new technique is developed to measure 90Sr in samples with a high specific activity and based on using characteristic Kx-radiation. The probability of Kx-radiation during the radioactive decay with the emission of electrons of 90Sr and 90Y was measured. The method for determination of 90Sr in the fuel-containing materials was proposed from the data on the probability of ionization of atoms in B-decay. Measurements of 90Sr were executed in fuel fragments of various types. Obtained results was compared and verified with the radiochemical research of these samples. The pro-posed method allows to execute the measurement of 90Sr with an accuracy of 3-5 % in the samples with high specific activity. These results open up new possibilities in the study of radioactive materials produced as a result of nuclear fission.
