Abstract

This work is focused on testing the implementation of k (0)-INAA using Kayzero for Windows and k0-IAEA software packages at the ITU TRIGA Mark II research reactor. The neutron spectrum parameters were determined using the bare triple-monitor method with Au and Zr monitors. The k (0)-INAA performance was tested by analysis of NIST SRMs 2711 Montana Soil and 1547 Peach Leaves. The performance assessment based on the E (n) criterion showed that the concentrations of a number of elements in both NIST SRMs determined by both software packages are in agreement with NIST values.
