Abstract

Neutron activation analyses of ground samples of safe-packing insulation have shown that dust from different sources may be differentiated by trace element content. Between 10 and 20 elements were identified in each of 54 samples, and comparison of the activation “fingerprints” offers a good prospect for positively or negatively matching two or more samples.
