Abstract

The use of photo-peak area ratios are investigated for quantitative estimation of elements, particularly chlorine, in aqueous solutions using neutron induced prompt gamma measurements. A ratio of prompt gamma intensities avoids the need for estimating the incident total neutron fluence and is demonstrated for chlorine concentration estimation in NaCl solutions. Monte Carlo simulation results validated with experimental measurements support the present analysis. Use of several prompt gamma intensities instead of a single one improves the accuracy of the estimated results.
