|Abstract:||In this paper we discuss an analytical method, neutron resonance capture analysis (NRCA), which used the energies of resonances to recognize elements. These resonances are observed by the time-of-flight technique using a pulsed neutron beam at the GELINA facility in Geel (Belgium). The prompt gamma-radiation, emitted after a neutron is captured, is used to signal that capture occured. Areas of resonance peaks are used to evaluate the elemental composition of objects and materials quantitatively. A comparison of NRCA and PGAA is made and elucidated with experimental data resulting from measurements of bronze artefacts at GELINA and at he Budapest neutron Centre.|
