Abstract  

The experimental sensitivity for 72 different elements using 3 MeV neutron activation has been investigated. Using a 200 kV Cockcroft-Walton neutron generator with a 3 MeV neutron flux of about 1.5·106n·cm−2·sec−1, γ-ray spectra of 51 elements were obtained with a sufficient number of photopeak counts for sensitivity calculations using a photopeak integration method. A useful table summarizing the sensitivity results is given. That 3 MeV neutron activation analysis is practical, is demonstrated by the experimental sensitivities obtained.
