Determination of Oxygen in Zircaloy Surfaces by Means of Charged Particle Activation Analysis

Abstract

Oxygen in zircaloy surfaces has been determined by means of charged particle activation analysis employing the following two reactions I. 16O (d, n) 17F ->(beta+decay) 17O Q = - 1.63 MeV; II. 16O (d, pgamma) 17O Q = + 1.05 MeV. The detection limits for oxygen in such surfaces has been investigated by measuring the promptly emitted 0.87 MeV gamma rays (reaction II) and also the 511 keV annihilation radiation which arises from beta-decay of 17F (reaction I). The correlation between the detection limit for oxygen in zircaloy, the particle energy and the surface thickness analyzed has been evaluated. At a deuteron energy of 3 MeV a detection limit of 0.7 x 10-7 g/cm2 was obtained from the measurement of the prompt gamma radiation arising from the second of these reactions. The analysis carried out by means of this technique is characterized by a high rapidity
