Neutron Resonance Absorption method (NRA) which is one of the imaging methods is very suitable for nondestructive analysis of element distributions in a sample. In this study, the NRA test experiments used by Micro Pixel Chamber ($$mu$$PIC) developed by Kyoto University as a detector were done at NOBORU in J-PARC to confirm the quantitativity. The detector was located at 14.5 m from the moderator. A sample was located at 15 cm upstream from the detector. Neutron intensity, neutron irradiation field size and $$gamma$$-ray intensity were controlled by a rotary collimator, slits and a filter exchange device. Thin tantalum foils of 20 $$mu$$m and 100 $$mu$$m in thickness were used as a sample. Transmittance spectra were obtained from the measured transmission spectra with and without the samples. It was found that the measurement error in case of the tantalum sample of 100$$mu$$m in thickness was within about 7% compared with nuclear data.
