Abstract : One of the limits imposed on experimental measurements of the neutron age of various materials is the size required for the experimental setup if the age is too great. In the case of NaZrF5, a calculation has been made to determine if this is a limiting factor in the measurement of age to indium resonance. In the calculation it is assumed that it is possible to apply the Fermi age theory for the distribution of neutrons.
