Abstract

Instrumental photon activation analysis can be used advantageously for the homogeneity control and the determination of uranium concentration in minerals and ores to be certified as uranium reference materials. The homogeneity control of high contents of uranium can also be performed by passive gamma ray spectrometry with high energy resolution. Interferences of 237-U characteristic lines with gamma rays from other radionuclides produced in the 44 MeV Bremsstrahlung are evaluated.
