The new cold neutron prompt gamma activation analysis (PGAA) facility provides improved capabilities for routine prompt gamma analysis and for the investigation of radiative neutron capture. The versatile beam chopper makes possible time-of-flight measurements and the acquisition of prompt and decay spectra simultaneously. The chopped beam PGAA technique combines the advantages of the in-beam measurement and the greater simplicity of decay gamma spectra.
