Abstract

The aim of the EU FP6-funded ANCIENT CHARM project has been the development of new, and the integration of existing element-sensitive imaging methods utilizing neutrons. We present here the methodology and the first implementation of 3D elemental mapping at the Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis instrument of the research reactor FRM II, in order to determine spatially resolved elemental abundances in samples. After the design, optimization, and characterization of the new setup, measurements were successfully completed on archaeological objects of historical significance from the collection of the Hungarian National Museum.
