Deeper Dive Topics
Below are slides from a PowerPoint presentation assembled a few years ago for the International Atomic Energy Agency e-learning project. You can find the full NDP course (and many other technique courses) through the link: http://elearning.iaea.org/m2/course/index.php?categoryid=108 Scan down the IAEA webpage to the Activation Analysis section and then follow the direction there to access the NDP section of the training courses. The quality of the slides appear much better on the IAEA site than those shown below.
It is important to know that the concepts outlined in this course are collected from a number of NDP researchers that have worked to develop the technique over decades of work improving instruments, beam lines, software, and experimental protocols. You can find more details of their methods in the articles cited in the literature section of this website.
