Abstract

The possibility of using neutron activation analysis to link up a secondary to a primary mono-elemental solution was investigated. A procedure was developed for the determination of the ratio between the mass fractions of two solutions. The use of a monitor element was essential to limit the effect of the non-uniformity of the neutron flux during irradiation. The proposed procedure was tested in the case of two molybdenum solutions having the same mass fraction. Although the experiment did not reach the goal, possible ways are suggested to reach the target expanded uncertainty of 0.1 %.
