An automated neutron activation analysis data acquisition system has been assembled from commercially available equipment.
The modifications of the components needed to make this into a working system are described in the text. The main components
of the data acquisition system are a sample changer, a Ge(Li) detector, a magnetic tape deck and a minicomputer based multichannel
analyzer. The sample changer has a 200-sample capacity and can handle both solid and liquid samples. Software for controlling
the data acquisition system is flexible, yet simple to use. The system has operated reliably for a year and has sharply reduced
the effort needed for data acquisition.
