Abstract : Measurement of radionuclides from environmental samples includes a wide variety of matrix compositions and densities. To improve the traceability of environmental monitoring, LNE-LNHB intends to produce mixed γ-ray reference materials with a known mass activity and a composition as representative as possible of real environmental samples. This paper describes the preparation and characterization of a low density treated grass matrix spiked with mixed γ-emitters. This material was used in a proficiency test exercise whose results are presented.
