Compilation of k0 and related data for NAA in the form of electronic database (IUPAC Technical Report)

V. P. Kolotov* and F. De Corte

Abstract: This report describes the principles underlying a comprehensive electronic database that contains data essential for calculation of analytical results from neutron-activation analysis (NAA) and that is available through IUPAC. The method used is a comparator method called the k0 method, where k0 is a dimensionless factor which is experimentally measured with high accuracy for more than 130 isotopes and which makes use of the gamma spectroscopic line for an analyte isotope relative to a gold comparator. The database contains recommended values for k0 and other relevant nuclear data.
