Abstract : Palladium-103 decays through electron capture to excited levels of $^{103}$Rh, and especially to the 39.748-keV metastable state. A high activity palladium chloride solution was standardized by liquid scintillation, using the Triple-to-Double Coincidence Ratio method. The absolute photon emission intensities were determined by gamma-ray spectrometry using point sources prepared with the standard solution. Different detectors and measuring conditions were used to cross-reference the results. The most intense photon emission intensities are derived with about 1% relative combined standard uncertainty.
