Abstract : Experiments show that microgram to nanogram quantities of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine can be detected using photon-activation analysis. Irradiation with Linac bremsstrahlung is followed by coincidence counting of annihilation radiation. The minimum detectable amount of an element is strongly dependent on the material involved and the irradiation energy. Similar amounts of some other elements can be detected. (Author)
