Generation of energy-tunable $$gamma$$-rays via laser Compton scattering is of great interest for applications of MeV photons -which interact with nuclei- and scientific studies. One of the promising applications of such energy-tunable $$gamma$$-rays is the nondestructive detection and assay of nuclides, which are necessary for nuclear security and safeguards. We are developing technologies relevant to $$gamma$$-ray nondestructive detection and assay, which include a high-brightness $$gamma$$-ray source based on modern laser and accelerator technologies, and $$gamma$$-ray measurement methods optimized for highly radioactive samples.
