Deuteron activation of chromium for thin layer activation studies
The study was aimed at the technological interest of using the thin layer activation (TLA) technique for surface performance evaluation of chromium based materials. Chromium-51, from the deuteron included reaction in natural chromium, has been selected as a tracing element and its relative activity as a function of depth has been considered. Results were based on calculations using computer codes, STAPRE and ALICE and experimental verifications, using the stacked foil technique and electropolishing of activated bulk samples. A very good agreement of the various methods was obtained. It is shown that using 10 MeV deuterons, a reasonable homogenous activation over 120 um can be obtained.
