Determining the oxygen content of steel by neutron activation techniques

News Feature


A fast neutron activation technique has been developed for determining the elemental oxygen in steel samples. With this analytical method, large, representative samples of steel can be analyzed in as little time as 1 min.

Since samples are tested nondestructively, it is a simple matter to check the results of a reading—either immediately or at a later time.
