Abstract  

The application of high resolution γ-spectrometry to the direct determination of235U/238U isotopic ratios in small uranium samples after neutron activation is reported. The consistency obtained relative to mass spectrometrically determined isotopic ratios is better than 5% for isotopic ratios between 0.06885 and 1.095. The method is not subject to the main disadvantages of the known radiochemical methods for235U/238U isotopic ratio determinations, and should be appreciably more rapid compared to the solid-source mass spectrometric method giving the same precision.
