Evaluation of isotopics and assay of Pu solution prepared from MOX as the base material of LSD spikes

Sumi, Mika; Suzuki, Toru ; Kageyama, Tomio ; Mason, P.*; Neuhoff, J.*

JAEA, with the technical assistance of New Brunswick Laboratory, is developing the capability to produce a small quantity of plutonium material of suitable purity and composition to serve as the basis for standard material of isotope dilution mass spectrometry which called LSD spike. The starting material consists of a mixed oxide of plutonium and uranium (MOX). The MOX material was dissolved and subjected to a series of purification steps to remove as much uranium as possible. The purified plutonium solution was sampled and analyzed for both uranium and plutonium isotopics and elemental concentrations via isotope dilution mass spectrometry using the total evaporation method on thermal ionization mass spectrometers. This report describes the evaluation of the measurement data, performed at JAEA and summarizes the results of the detailed uncertainty analyses performed for each data set at NBL. The detailed uncertainty analyses are performed based on GUM.
