A qualtitative and quantitative analysis of the core gas generated by the AGN-201 reactor at the United States Naval Postgraduate School was made by analysis of the spectrum of gamma-rays emitted two hours after peak power operations. The principle radioactive isotopes present, based on gamma-ray photopeak energies and half-lives, were found to be Kr85m, KR87, KR88, Xe133, and Xe135. The total activity was found to be 363 of - microcuries per milliter. The percent of the total activity due to the presence of each isotope identified in the order stated above is 10.2, 9.0, 47.4, 18.6, and 4.4. The sources of the remaining 10.4 of the total activity were not identified.
