Fast Neutron Activation and Use of Isotopic Sources


It is shown that the superficial oxygen content of thin aluminium foils can be found using 14 MeV neutron activation. The results obtained with this method are in good agreement with those given by ellipsometric methods for oxide layers from 50 to 500 Å.
