Abstract  

The use of 2.8 MeV neutrons produced by the D(d, n)3He reaction should be taken into consideration in some applications of radioactivation analysis. The low number of elements activable by these neutrons makes possible to minimize the matrix interference and the background below the characteristic photopeaks. The very low dead-time of the spectrometric measurements permits the use of the maximum neutron flux available now and in the future. The purpose of this paper is to define experimentally the sensitivity of determination for the 16 main elements activable with a 400 keV Van de Graaff accelerator at a 2.8 MeV neutron flux of 2·106 n·cm−2·sec−1 on the sample.
