Advanced

MeV Protons for the Characterization of Aerosols in Work Environments

Bohgard, Mats LU ; Malmqvist, Klas LU ; Johansson, Gerd LU and Akselsson, Roland LU (1981) In Nuclear Instruments & Methods in Physics Research. Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors, and Associated Equipment 181(1-3). p.459-463
Abstract
In this paper the advantages of accelerator-based chemical analysis of work environment aerosols are discussed. Use of the PIXE method is central, but in order to take full advantage of the possibilities of an accelerator laboratory, it should be combined with nuclear methods such as particle-induced nuclear reactions and/or particle scattering for simultaneous measurements of light elements. It is also important to develop optimum sampling techniques for the analytical methods required. Some information about the current set-up in Lund is given. In a companion paper, the potential of PIXE for work environment tasks is illustrated by a summary of the design of two major studies. Some results are also included.
