Assessment of PGAA capability for low-level measurements of H in Ti alloy



Danyal J. Turkoglu, Huaiyu H. Chen-Mayer, Rick L. Paul, Rolf L. Zeisler


The accuracy of low-level hydrogen measurements with prompt gamma-ray activation analysis (PGAA) depends on identifying and accounting for all background H signal, including interfering signals. At the cold-neutron (CN)PGAA facility at the NIST Center for Neutron Research, the sources of background H signal were investigated in the context of titanium-based matrices containing low-levels of H (
