Detection limits in activation analysis using Ge(Li)-detectors installed in an underground laboratory

  • S. Niese
  • W. Helbig


The advantages of an underground laboratory for the measurement of activated pure materials are demonstrated. Background spectra and experimentally determined detection limits for the INAA of semiconductor silicon are compared with literature data and interference-free detection limits are calculated.
