Kayzero for Windows

New Update Kayzero for Windows available (Version 3)


NAA software based on the k0-standardisation method developed by Frans De Corte and Andras Simonits.

Thanks to the k0-standardisation method, Neutron Activation Analysis has evolved to an efficient element analysis technique that can even be used commercially. Kayzero(R) calculates element concentrations taking into account all aspects dealt with in the k0-method, including efficiency and coincidence correction calculation (Solcoi(R)).

The Kayzero/Solcoi (R) software was developed by Robbert van Sluijs at DSM Research, The Netherlands, under the care of the fathers of the k0-method, Prof. Dr. Frans De Corte and Dr. Andras Simonits.

All information requests and orders should be addressed to: R. van Sluijs. k0-ware, The Netherlands. (phone: +31 45 5726757; e-mail: robbert.van.sluijs@hetnet.nl).

Discussion forum for sharing comments or problems so we all learn from our experiences.


Sorry for the popup window it is coming from the free counter which is used.

If you like to receive a mail when the website is updated: Just send a mail. You do not need to give any information about yourself but we can perhaps suit you better if you do give some information. E.g. your name, institute, the kind of software you use now, etc..

  • The Windows Version
    The Windows version is fully compatible with all old data. The program runs in the directory of the DOS-Version without any interference and uses the same data. All SOLCOI options are included.

  • Spectrum Deconvolution
    Spectrum deconvolution (determination of peak locations and areas) is not implemented in Kayzero for Windows, file formats for spectrum and peak table files from Sampo90, Hypermet, Hyperlab and Genie are supported; other formats on request (free of charge).

  • Information on the software
    Recent presentations on Kayzero for Windows: at the NAMLS, at the 4th k0-users Workshop and at the MARC-VII. Have a look at Screen Captures from Kayzero for Windows or download the program and use it as a Demo version. Or have a look at some literature on Kayzero.

    At the 4th k0-users workshop Kayzero for Windows Version 2 was presented. This version includes: integrated direct SOLCOI calculations, multi-monitor f and alpha determination, reactor fluxvariation during irradiation and improved gamma interference correction. This upgrade, as well of all minor updates were free of charge for all "Kayzero for Windows" users.

  • Demo
    Find the demo program (it turns into the full version if you have the Dongle), the dataset (KayV5A), the Vademecum (old, but is being updated) and the first draft of the new updated manual. New updates of Kayzero for Windows are also always available on the download page.

  • Newest upgrade: Version 3
    The major upgrade of Kayzero for Windows, Version 3, is finally ready, sorry for the delay. This upgrade is not free of charge. Please mail me for a quotation and more information.
