Detection of elemental diversity in teeth in the by Ipaa method
MetadataShow full item record
There are many element analysis methods for substances whose element diversity is unknown. One of them is the photon activation analysis method (IPAA). In this study, photon activation analysis method(IPAA), which is a technique developed for analytical results, was used. A linear accelerator was used for the detection of the mother and daughter nuclei in the teeth, and therefore for the determination of the element diversity in the teeth. The tooth samples used in the study were supplied by Akdeniz University Faculty of Dentistry. The conditions that determine the diversity of the data to be obtained in this study are due to the age, gender and environmental factors of the samples. The tooth has gone through various physical stages before being stimulated into the specimens. After these procedures, cLINAC is ready to be excitement. The 18 MeV tip emitted from cLINAC was exposed to bremstrahlung photons. γ-rays emitted from tooth samples exposed to these bremsstrahlung tip exit photons were obtained using high resolution γ spectrometry. As a result of this γ spectrometry, mother and daughter nuclei were detected in the teeth. Factors that provide this difference, age, gender, nutrition types and external factors that develop depending on geographical conditions are the most important reasons for this diversity. Elements such as Sr, Ca, Co, Mg, Na, N were determined from different tooth samples examined in this study. As a result, the elements identified here help us to have very detailed information about the characteristic features of the tooth sample.
