A method is presented for determining the concentration of light elements in a surface layer up to 15 μm deep, utilizing the anomalous increase in elastic scattering cross-sectional area when high-energy alpha-particles are scattered by light nuclei through large angles. For the separation of the short-lived nuclide17F, isotope-exchange between the solid and liquid phases was applied.
