Abstract

The newly installed multiple prompt gamma-ray analysis (MPGA) system at the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) was characterized for nondestructive multi-element analysis of geological and cosmochemical samples. Analysis of the hydrogenous meteorite Orgueil by both MPGA and PGA implies that MPGA can be used for elemental determination with sufficient accuracy. For some elements which cannot be determined by conventional PGA due to the spectral interference or lower sensitivity, it was shown that they could be determined by MPGA.
