Neutron activation analysis (NAA)

For chemical analysis

Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) is a nuclear analytical technique. After the capture of a neutron by the atomic nucleus in a sample, gamma rays with an isotope specific energy are emitted. Their detection can be used for non-destructive, highly sensitive isotope analysis of a large variety of materials.
