R&D on nuclear forensics technology at JAEA

Sakurai, Satoshi; Watahiki, Masaru; Suzuki, Mitsutoshi; Kuno, Yusuke

The national statement made by the Japan Government at 2010 Nuclear Security Summit at Washington D.C., U.S.A. was to develop its nuclear forensics detection and analysis technologies in a three-year period and to share them with the international community to contribute to strengthening the nuclear security regime. The Japan Atomic Energy Agency, JAEA, is the organization that possesses analytical capabilities with the potential to fulfill this nuclear forensics mission, since JAEA has been developing a wide range of analytical techniques for nuclear material samples from large size ones to trace level ones of environmental sampling. For this reason, JAEA starts R&D on nuclear forensics technology from JFY 2011. In the presentation reported will be JAEA's outline of R&D to establish nuclear forensics analytical capabilities including international cooperation. The summary of International Workshop on Nuclear Forensics on 5-6 October 2010 at Tokai, Japan will be also reported.
