Safeguards instrumentation at NUCEF

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

As part of the US Department of Energy/Japanese Atomic Energy Research Institute research cooperation, a hybrid K-edge/x-ray fluorescence densitometer was developed and fabricated by Los Alamos National Laboratory. The instrument, designed for accountability measurements and for International Atomic Energy Agency inspections, was installed at the analytical laboratory of Nuclear Fuel Cycle Safety Engineering Research Institute in 1994. The system was calibrated with uranium solutions in 1995. This paper will describe the features of the instrument. They will also discuss the calibration of the instrument and compare the techniques of hybrid densitometry and chemical analysis for measuring routine samples.
