On the use of spectrum subtraction in INAA based on short-lived radionuclides

  • H. A. Das


The influence of a separate compton-background determination on the precision and accuracy of INAA by short-lived radionuclides is discussed. A gain in both parameters is possible at the cost of an appreciably prolonged cycle time.
