Accuracy and Precision


Interfering reactions in photon activation analysis are compiled and evaluated quantitatively; the results are based on experimentally obtained data exclusively. All elements in the Periodic Table with few exceptions have been irradiated several times with 30 MeV bremsstrahlung produced by a linear electron accelerator. The element samples were measured many times to detect all expected radionuclides and hence all possible interfering reactions. These reactions are listed and presented in Table 1.
