Abstract  

By means of thermal neutron activation and countings on the small planar and large coaxial Ge(Li) detector, 13 elements are determined in various silicate rocks, using short-lived radionuclides with half-lives from 2 min to 15 h. A method of routine analysis with simple dead-time and pile-up correction is described and tested with the standard rocks AGV-1 and G-2.
