A delayed neutron counting system has been implemented at the HANARO research reactor in 2007. Thermal neutron flux measured
at the NAA #2 irradiation hole coupled to the delayed counting system, was higher than 3 × 1013 n cm−2 s−1. The delayed neutron counting system is composed of 18 3He detectors which are divided into three groups with six detectors and the collected signals of each group are processed
to a digital signal. The count numbers were measured with the uranium mass by using NIST SRMs under fixed analytical condition
and their correlation could be determined. Finally, delayed neutron activation analysis has been carried out for the determination
of uranium mass fraction in the collected environmental samples.
