Abstract  

A reactor-detector combination has been calibrated for routine determination of trace elements by instrumental neutron activation analysis using the semi-absolute method with flux corrections. The reproducibility of the calibration constants is studied using the standard rock AGV-1 for the activities140La,141Ce,153Sm,160Tb,152Eu,175Yb,177Lu,131Ba,60Co,51Cr,134Cs,181Hf,233Pa,46Sc, and182Ta. The results show that a calibration reproducibility with a relative precision of better than 5% can be achieved in many of the cases without any special precautions. To study the applicability of the calibration constants, concentrations of the corresponding elements have been determined in standard rocks, G-2, W-1 and GSP-1 and are compared with the recommended values.
