Determination of metals in alloys by neutron capture gamma-ray spectrometry
- 24 Downloads
A collimated neutron beam capable of providing a thermal neutron flux of 4.75·107 n·cm−2·sec−1 has been used to analyze alloy samples of 1–5 g during relatively short irradiation times of 30 min by the use of neutron capture gamma-ray spectrometry. The analyses were performed by using a mathematical treatment that relates the count ratio of every constituent present in the matrix with the concentration and thus it requires no standards. The technique was applied to the analysis of steel and gold alloy samples. Errors ranged from 0.8%–10%.
