The paper discusses neutron activation in basic research aspects of VVÉR fields.

A library of typical VVÉR spectra is proposed, and characteristic integral cross sections are given for recommended activation reactions, with a discussion of neutron-activation detectors standardized in Russia for this form of measurement.
