Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) laboratory is located at AMD Headquarter, Hyderabad. It is a nondestructive nuclear technique, employed to find the elemental concentrations of Na, K, Ca, Sc, Cr, Fe, Co, Zn, Ga, As, Br, Rb, Ag, Sb, Cs, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Tm, Ho, Yb, Lu, Hf, Ta, W, Au, Th and U. Measurements from percentage to ultra trace levels are possible by this technique. High purity germanium co-axial/ planar solid-state detector coupled to PC-based multichannel analyser is employed for spectrum analysis after irradiating the sample in CIRUS reactor of BARC.
