A systematic study of activation analysis with cyclotron-produced neutrons for (n, 2n), (n, p) and (n, α) reactions is presented.
The limits of detection for elements of atomic number from 6 to 80 are given. The possibilities of optimization of irradiation
conditions by the choice of the most suitable neutron spectrum are discussed. The potential of this fast neutron activation
analysis method is compared with that of 14 MeV neutron activation analysis.
