Abstract

When making use of some single comparator or absolute standardization methods in reactor neutron and in epicadmium neutron activation analysis, the knowledge of the effective resonance energy ( {Mathematical expression}) is essential to correct for the effect of the nonideal epithermal flux distribution on the analysis result. {Mathematical expression} can be calculated from neutron resonance data, but when these are incomplete, not accurate or even not known at all, experimental determination should be considered. Such a method, providing both {Mathematical expression} and the resonance integral to 2200 ms-1 cross-section ratio (QO), is described in this paper. Results are given for 11 isotopes.
