Internal standard method utilized for 14 MeV neutron induced characteristic X-ray emission analysis
An activation analytical method has been developed for determining Cd, Ag, Sb, Se, Br by 14 MeV neutron-induced X-ray emission spectroscopy using Pr as an internal standard. A good correlation was obtained between the activity ratio, RAo and the weight ratio, RW. Results are given after correction for self-absorption and without correction. The results are comparable in both cases when dilution with H3BO3 (≈90%) is applied. The elements listed can be determined at minor concentrations (≥0.01%) with a relative error not more than ±5%.
