Plutonium mass measurements in waste drum by neutron coincidence counting: principle and recent improvements


Congress title :SYMPOSIUM ON SAFEGUARDS AND NUCLEAR MATERIAL MANAGEMENT
Congress town :Aix-en-Provence
Congress date :22/05/2007

Summary

A technique for measuring quantity of plutonium contained in waste drums is presented. The principle of the method consists in recording the spontaneous neutrons fissions emitted by the even isotopes of plutonium by use of a shift register device. The method takes into a count the matrix effects with a transmission 252Cf source and the source localization effect inside the drum.
