Abstract  

In non destructive activation analysis, either relative measurements or parametric counting techniques are used. However, in so complex media as biological or geological samples, where a lot of radionuclides are produced, an accurate determination of an element, must take into account, the “background shape and height effect” due to the other radionuclides. To achieve accuracy in such determinations, a new method is developed.
