Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA), or sometimes referred to as simply NAA, is a method for determination of many elements at low levels in a wide variety of materials. Samples are usually encapsulated in polyethylene or some other suitable packaging, packed into an irradiation capsule (usually a polyethylene “rabbit”) and irradiated in the reactor core.

Instrumental neutron activation analysis was applied to evaluate the chemical composition of metallic materials, namely iron, steel, silicon and ferrosilicon certified reference materials.

As, Co, Cr, Mn, Mo, Ni, V and W concentrations were analyzed in the Chemical element profiles by instrumental neutron activation analysis book and steel samples whereas 21 elements were determined in silicon and ferrosilicon.

Varied forms of neutron activation analysis (NAA), due to their high accuracy and reproducibility, are being used in geological studies and in medical application for the determination of concentration of elements down to the trace and ultra-trace level. Concentration of Cs, Sc, Fe, Ta, Co and Eu which may give rise to long-lived activity on neutron irradiation has been determined down to Author: Maitreyee Nandy.

Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) is the simplest and most widely used form of NAA. It involves the direct irradiation of the sample, meaning that the sample does not undergo any chemical separation or treatment prior to detection.

Radiochemical Neutron Activation Analysis (RNAA) Radiochemical neutron activation analysis (RNAA) extends the capabilities of instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) by adding a chemical separation to isolate the element(s) of interest.

Radiochemical neutron activation analysis (RNAA) is a method for trace‐element determination based on the measurement of an indicator radionuclide, chemically separated from a neutron‐activated sample. During dust episodes, and at normal conditions in order to compare dust and non-dust period, daily PM aerosol samples and weekly six stage size separated aerosol samples were collected at Antalya, an eastern Mediterranean location.

NAA allows discrete sampling of elements as it disregards the chemical form of a sample, and focuses solely on its nucleus. The method is based on neutron activation and therefore requires a source of neutrons. The sample is bombarded with neutrons, causing the elements.

Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) is a relatively straightforward technique for determining elemental abundances in a wide range of materials.

The method utilizes the interaction between a thermal (or higher energy) neutron and a nucleus to produce a radioactive nuclide that emits characteristic gamma rays. A rapid pneumatic transfer system for the cyclic instrumental neutron activation has been indigenously designed and installed.

The system enables the detection of short-lived thermal and epithermal neutron activated nuclides. Interfacing between gamma spectrometry and other components of the system is achieved through two programmable logic controllers.
