Title: 14 MeV neutron activation analysis and its application to flowing systems
Authors: Bibby, David M.
Issue Date: 1970
Publisher: © D.M. Bibby
Abstract: Although fast neutron activation analysis has been increasingly used with discrete samples, little work has been carried out on its possible application to flowing liquids. A-relatively small-scale system has been designed for the neutron irradiation of liquids and its characteristics studied by the production of isotopes having half-lifes between 40 and 600 seconds. The limits imposed by the interfering activity produced by the irradiation of water have been investigated. The sensitivity of the system used has been studied for a range of isotopes and related to the readily available limits of detection for discrete samples. Calibration curves have been obtained for a range of elements and the analysis of mixtures of elements carried out. [Continues.]
