In absolute or comparator standardization methods of (n, γ) activation analysis with reactor neutrons, the epithermal neutron flux nonideality, if neglected, max lead to significant errors on the analytical result. The concept of the effective resonance energy {Mathematical expression}, introduced to correct for this effect, is reviewed.
