Abstract

Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis as a representative method of nuclear analytical technique, has advantages of non-destructive, simultaneous multi-element analysis with the characteristics of absolute measurement method. Up to date, $k_0$-quantitative method which is accurate, convenient and user-friendly, has been generalized world-widely. In this study, it is intented to introduce the general concept of $k_0$-method and to measure $k_0$-parameters for the future implementation to our NAA system. For this objectives, the definition of relevant factors for the quantitative analysis and the equation for the experimental determination of parameters such as $Q_0$(${\alpha}$) and f were summarized. Furthermore, a foundation for the $k_0$-standardization method was prepared through the measurement of ${\alpha}$ and f-value which depend on the specific character of irradiation hole at NAA#1-hole of HANARO research reactor.
