Physical Methods Section


A more exact and reliable irradiation system for the photon activation analysis by the use of high power electron linear accelerator was originally designed and tested. Applications of a simple beam position monitor and a thin beryllium oxide ceramic disk in this system made possible to control the beam position on the center axis of sample during irradiation, and also permitted the reproducible irradiations in situ.
