Abstract  

Applying thek0 standardization method to prompt-gamma activation analysis (PGAA) offers similar benefits as in instrumental neutron activation analysis. It has been demonstrated that under constant flux conditionsk0-factors obtained by normalizing to a titanium comparator, measured separately, yield consistent analytical sensitivity ratios. The ratio method has been generalized by using stoichiometric compounds for the determination ofk0-factors. Since chlorine forms compounds with essentially everyelement and it also serves as a detector efficiency standard,k0 values have been determined relative to chlorine as an internal standard for several analytically important elements in two reactor facilities: the thermal guided beam at the BRR in Budapest and the cold-neutron beams at the NBSR at NIST.
