This timely publication covers prompt measurements as well as delayed activation measurements used in chemical analysis of the elements. It describes the various possibilities of activation: neutrons, charged ions, and photons. Also discussed are the advantages and disadvantages of each activation method. These volumes are important for those in geology, archaeology, biology, analytical chemistry, radioanalytical and nuclear chemistry, the semiconductor industry, and others.
