1995 Journal de Physique IV : Proceedings  
The application of activation analysis to high-purity metals is reviewed. The advantages, disadvantages and causes of error are discussed. Examples of applications are given and discussed, using neutron, photon and charged particle activation. The main advantage of activation analysis is to avoid and to remove contaminations. This leads to high accuracy even for very low concentrations. Finally, the main characteristics of new mass spectrometric methods versus activation analysis are discussed.
