Abstract

The systematic study of the experimental conditions affecting the minimum detection limit attainable by the deuteron induced gamma-ray emission (DIGE) method in the case of nitrogen determination in carbon matrix is presented. An optimal experimental set-up has been realized with the use of plate glass linings of the transport tube and chamber close to the target and using copper diaphragms for shaping the beam. The necessity of the reduction of electronic pile-up and the cosmic background is also discussed. The best detection limit obtained was 130 μg/g. A comparison with other analytical methods has been made.
