Becquerel INAA (35 elements, including Ti)



Becquerel INAA (Ag, As, Au, Ba, Br, Ce, Cd, Co, Cr, Cs, Eu, Fe, Hf, Ir, La, Lu, Mo, Na, Ni, Rb, Sb, Sc, Se, Sm, Sn, Ta, Tb, Te, Th, Ti, U, W, Yb, Zn, Zr)

General Methodology:

Weighed and encapsulated samples, normally 30 g, were packaged for irradiation along with internal standards and international reference materials.  Samples and standards were irradiated together with neutron flux monitors in a two-megawatt pool type reactor.  After a seven-day decay period, samples were measured with a high-resolution germanium detector.  Typical counting times were 500 seconds.
