Abstract

Neutron-induced prompt gamma activation analysis (PGAA) has been used to analyze model photochromic host materials that contain low concentrations of elemental dopants. Analyses are also presented for typical low concentration compounds used as dopants in inorganic photochromic materials. Elemental analytical results are given and discussed, along with sensitivity values for the appropriate elements. The significance of several of the trace metals ions found to be present in the materials is discussed.
