Abstract

This article provides a detailed account of the concepts and applications of neutron activation analysis (NAA), covering the basic principles and neutron reactions of NAA as well as calibration methods used for NAA. The discussion also covers the factors pertinent to analytical sensitivity achievable with NAA, common neutron sources, sample-handling technique, and automated systems of NAA. The categories of NAA covered are instrumental neutron activation analysis, epithermal neutron activation analysis, radiochemical neutron activation analysis, 14 MeV fast neutron activation analysis, delayed neutron activation analysis, and prompt gamma activation analysis.
