Title: Software Progress in the PGNAA of Bulk Materials

Abstract

One of the primary evolving important uses of {sup 252}Cf sources is in the prompt gamma-ray neutron activation analysis (PGNAA) of the bulk materials in on-line continuous processes such as those for coal and cement. The advantages of this measurement approach for these applications are as follows: (a) it is noncontacting, (b) it is nondestructive, and (c) it is sensitive to large sample volumes. This paper describes the authors' work on the development of suitable computer software for this application.
