Nondestructive Activation Analysis

360 pages8 hours


Studies in Analytical Chemistry, 3: Nondestructive Activation Analysis focuses on the reactions, principles, methodologies, and approaches involved in nondestructive activation analysis.

The selection first offers information on irradiation, measurement and techniques, and manual and computerized data processing in activation analysis. Discussions focus on result computation with Nal(Tl) and Ge(Li) data, analysis of gamma-ray spectra, X-ray, spectrometry, neutron counting in activation analysis, neutron sources, and measurement of very short-lived nuclides. The book then examines applications, including biomedical sciences, geo- and cosmochemistry, applications of trace element analysis to studies of the atmospheric environment, and high purity materials, standards, and reference materials. The text discusses the applications of nondestructive activation analysis to archaeology, industry, and forensics.

The selection is a vital reference for researchers wanting to explore nondestructive activation analysis.
