Abstract

A second cold-neutron beam experimental station has been built as part of the renewal of our prompt gamma activation analysis facility at the Budapest Research Reactor. This new station has been instrumented for neutron-induced prompt gamma-ray spectroscopy, involving γ-γ coincidence measurements. The γ-γ coincidence arrangement is introduced briefly, and its usage is illustrated with a practical example of the inactive tracer method for samples from glass furnace.
