Preliminary delayed $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy for non-destructive analysis of fissionable material

Rodriguez, D.; Heyse, J.*; Koizumi, Mitsuo; Mondelaers, W.*; Pedersen, B.*; Schillebeeckx, P.*; Seya, Michio; Takamine, Jun

There is a growing interest regarding how to effectively safeguard NM, specifically how to efficiently determine the composition of mixed materials. Currently researchers of the JAEA and JRC are discussing the development of a NDA system using a pulsed DT neutron source. The system will utilize a combination of DDA, NRTA, PGA, and DGS techniques. Of specific interest is applying this system toward determining the Pu/U composition of purified MOX fuel and non-purified NM. The DGS technique has the potential to establish fissionable material ratios to relatively high precision. These fission products generate time-dependent $$gamma$$-ray energy spectra that extend well above 3 MeV, a benefit when applied to the NM of interest that have high passive emissions. This presentation will describe initial studies regarding the precision that the DGS portion of this system can obtain and how it will be used in conjunction with the other techniques to analyze the composition of the NM of interest.
