High-energy bremsstrahlung, variable up to about 60 MeV, from high-intensity electron linacs can produce activation through a variety of photonuclear reactions. A great range of activities by half-lives can be used. Some discrimination between target elements can be obtained through the choice of bremsstrahlung endpoint energy. The high resolution of GeLi gamma-ray spectrometers permits much of the analysis to be accomplished without chemical separation of resulting nuclei hence nondestructive analysis can be applied to many materials. To facilitate the use of such analysis, a compilation of photonuclear reactions with their resulting gamma-rays has been prepared, supplementing the compilation for activities with half-lives from 100 microsec to 24 hours given in NRL Report 7554. This second compilation is for activities with half-lives from 24 hours to 1 year and again consists of two tabulations. Table 1-S list the photonuclear reactions by target nuclei. Table 2D and 2E, the final two parts of Table 2, list the reactions by gamma-ray energies Table 2D is for half-lives from 24 hours to 30 days, and Table 2E is for half-lives from 30 days to 1 year.
