Accelerator Systems for Activation Analysis—A Comparative Survey
Accelerator systems for neutron activation analysis have become increasingly common in recent years. Some of these are simple systems designed specifically for activation analysis, while others are primarily sophisticated instruments for nuclear physics research, which may be adapted for the activation method. Most of these accelerators have used the radio frequency or Penning ion sources for deuteron production. Recently, however, increased attention has been focused on the Dio-Plas- matron ion source, which is capable of producing much larger beam currents. The beam from the Duo-Plasmatron ion source can be magnetically and electrostatically analyzed to produce an intense monatomic beam at the target.
