An online neutron activation analysis database (NAADB)


An online computer program for an interactive database was specifically developed for neutron activation analysis (NAA). The software written in Java includes gamma-ray catalog, neutron activation calculator for activity calculations and decay schemes. For the novice, expert and educator this program can greatly reduce needed information in NAA.
