Abstract

The results obtained by experimentally studying gamma rays emitted by samples prepared as analogs of planetary matter and irradiated with thermal neutrons are presented. The intensities of spectral lines of gamma rays emitted by such samples differing in chemical composition are compared. These results will be used in processing data on gamma-ray spectra of the Moon and Mercury from measurements performed onboard spacecrafts with the aim of studying the composition of the surface of these celestial bodies.
