JAERI has conducted the analysis of domestic and the IAEA samples. JAERI is developing the analytical techniques to improve the analytical ability for the safeguards environmental samples. For bulk analysis, study is focused on the improvement of reliability of isotope ratio measurements by ICP-MS. New chemical separation techniques are under development and a desolvation module is introduced to reduce the polyatomic interferences. In particle analysis, the sample preparation procedure for SIMS method is modified to measure the $$^{234}$$U/$$^{238}$$U and $$^{236}$$U/$$^{238}$$U ratios for individual particles. We are also developing fission track-TIMS method to measure uranium isotope ratios in particles of sub-micrometer size. A screening instrument of X-ray fluorescent analysis is equipped to measure elemental distribution on a swipe surface.

Particle analysis by FT-TIMS method is effective for safeguards environmental samples because the isotope ratios of sub-micrometer particles can be determined. The FT-TIMS method developed by the authors, in which the particles are confined in the detector, has merits such as high detection efficiency and the possibility as a screening method for uranium particles according to their enrichment by controlling the etching time. However, it was found that a part of uranium particles contained in a detector may dissolve during the etching process of the detector. In order to overcome the problem, we are developing a novel sample preparing method in which the FT detector and the particle layer are separated. In the conventional FT sample of separated type, the detection process of particles of interest is time-consuming and complicated due to the discrepancy in position between tracks and particles. In contrast, the discrepancy was solved by fixing a part of a detector and a particle layer in our method, which improved the detection efficiency of particles containing fissile materials.

An effective method for isotope ratio analysis of individual particles containing uranium in safeguards swipe samples was developed by using a fission track (FT) technique combined with thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS). The particles in the sample were directly recovered onto a polycarbonate membrane filter, which was set in a filtration system. After the particle recovery, the filter was dissolved to form a non-coated FT detector film containing the particles. Individual particles containing uranium were then identified by the observation of fission tracks created by thermal neutron irradiation. By combination of the FT technique with TIMS, isotope ratios of uranium for individual particles in the swipe sample prepared from a uranium standard reference material could be effectively determined.

In order to detect of undeclared activities in nuclear facilities, we develop to technique of safeguards environmental sample analysis in JAEA. As part of this effort, isotope ratio analysis of individual MOX particle was performed using by TIMS without chemical treatment. It is possible to estimate an age determination of plutonium purification by a combination of the plutonium isotope ratios and (Pu-238+Am-241)/(Pu-239+Pu-240) alpha activity ratios were obtained by the alpha spectrometry. Since the plutonium particle size is more than 1$$mu$$m due to the influence of self-absorption, exactly measurement of the activity ratios has been difficult. Therefore, we were examining how to acid dissolution in the plutonium particles on the TIMS filament before alpha spectrometry.
