Abstract

In the pottery sample which is the replica of the archeological sample, we attempted to get simultaneously not only the image by neutron radiography but also the information about elemental components by prompt gamma-ray analysis (PGA) at the B-4 beam hole that is usually used for the neutron radiography facility in Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute. It was confirmed that qualitative analysis of elements in the pottery sample was successfully performed by PGA at the B-4 beam hole and that PGA is applicable to the large sample analysis for inhomogeneous bulk archeological samples in the future.
