Determination of burnup effects in 197 Au(n,? )198 Au prior to reactor neutron field characterization
A simple and accurate method is presented to evaluate the burnup effects involved in the neutron activation of 197 Au and 199 Au decay gammas. The obtained burnup factor can be used as an input for reactor neutron field characterization techniques using 197 Au(n,? ) 198 Au as a monitor. This way an iterative procedure is avoided.
