Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis for Trace Element Analysis of Geological, Biological and Environmental Materials
Mon Jan 5, 11am-02:00pm, NW13-263
Instrumental neutron activation analysis is a non-destructive analytical technique for the determination of elemental abundances at very low levels in a wide variety of samples, geological to biological. Get to know this technique which was used to analyze the lunar rock samples and is now widely used in environmental pollution studies. Everybody is welcome.This course is arranged in four sessions.
Session 1: Introduction and principles.
Session 2: Description of gamma spectrometer.
Session 3: Hands on experience w/ instrumentation.
Session 4: A case study.
