Monostandard activation analysis and its applications: Analyses of Kale powder and NBS standard glass samples

  • J. I. Kim
  • H. -J. Born
Physical Methods Section


The monostandard method with the use of Ge(Li) γ-spectrometry has been elaborated with a critical evaluation of the nuclear data involved in activation and activity measurement. The method was tested by analysing simultaneously 15 elements in a well known standard material of Kale powder and 12 elements in NBS standard glass samples. The results are compared with the reported data to prove the accuracy of the monostandard method.
