Prompt gamma neutron activation analysis (PGAA) is a non-destructive technique used to quantitatively determine the presence and amount of elements in a sample irrespective of the chemical composition. Different neutron spectra are generally used to detect different elements.
Includes Neutron Depth Profiling with special application to Lithium ion battery technology. Detection of H, C, N, St, P, S, Cd, Hg
Detection of U, Th, Rb, Sr, Mo, Sb, Cs, Ba, Ta, Tb
PGNA-T: Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation – Thermal
