The resonance at 0.83 MeV (center-of-mass energy) in the nuclear reaction ^1H(^(19)F,αγ)^(16)O has been used to measure hydrogen depth profiles in solids. Hydrogen concentrations have been measured to a depth of 0.4μm both in samples implanted with 11.5-keV protons and in several lunar samples. Further applications of this technique are discussed and several other resonant nuclear reactions are suggested for depth distribution studies of hydrogen and other elements.
