Abstract: Prompt gamma neutron activation analysis is concerned with the detection of a nucleus which undergoes neutron capture, followed by particle or radiation emission, in a time period of < 10−12 s. As usually practised, the emitted radiation is detected and measured while a sample is being irradiated in a reactor neutron beam. instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA), that either produce a better signal-to-noise ratio or reduce the errors involved. Neutron activation analysis (NAA) is primarily a method of trace element determination (concentrations < 0.01%) although minor and major elements may be determined in some applications. @�+ޠRb��B��N���.�ۼ�I&�f�4f1�/WhS[��o`�i�AtIP�©Z�$�Y�Sy�E��$ԋ��S���H��Ġm%G��_#3��p�ټa3� Advantages of NAA.

Abstract: Prompt gamma neutron activation analysis is concerned with the detection of a nucleus which undergoes neutron capture, followed by particle or radiation emission, in a time period of < 10−12 s. As usually practised, the emitted radiation is detected and measured while a sample is being irradiated in a reactor neutron beam. instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA), that either produce a better signal-to-noise ratio or reduce the errors involved.

Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) is used to determine the concentration of trace and major elements in a variety of matrices. An overview is given of the basic mechanisms, fundamental equations and general procedure of the method. The method originated with Hevesy and Levi in 1936 (ref 1) but did not become a practical method of analysis until the development of the nuclear reactor (1940s) as a high intensity neutron source. However, it usually requires a strong enough neutron source such as research reactors or neutron generating accelerators. trailer 29.
