Application of prompt gamma-ray spectrometry to helium-3-induced activation of boron
An assessment was made of the analytical potential of the exoergic reactions on boron, induced by3He+ beams. Possible interferences from C, N and O were studied. Gamma-rays originating from (3He, n), (3He, d), (3He, d), (3He, α) and Coulomb excitation were identified. Possible practical applications in boron studies are indicated.
