Included in the neutron activation analysis,
the entire facility PTE_1 serves to quickly carry out the
transportation of weakly activated sample caps from the reactor room to the more distant analysis and measuring
room. Thereby, the straight distance to be
bridged amounts to approx. 100m. Several rooms and
safety barriers are to be crossed. Before, the sample caps were irradiated in a
defined way by the irradiation facilities TBR, DBVK and DBVR.
So far, the transport was exclusively
carried out by hand by coworkers
of the HMI Berlin. For those it meant
time-consuming, repeated channeling and moving. The measurement of
short-lived isotopes is to be optimally organized.
