Studies in heavy ion activation analysis trace determination possibilities with9Be bombardment Academic Article uri icon


  • 9Be induced radioactivation was used to study the trace determination of 19 elements at 3 different ion beam energies (Elab=14, 32 and 63 MeV9Be2+). Nine nuclear reactions, yielding radionuclides with half-lives longer than 2.5 m, present potential analytical features. Beside the very sensitive detection of B and N, the multielemental determination of Na, Si, Ca, Sc, and Zn is possible with a9Be ion beam of appropriate incident energy. Nuclear interferences have also been investigated and quantified. 1987 Akadmiai Kiad.
