Viability of long-lived fission products as signatures in forensic radiochemistry

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Forensic radiochemistry refers to studies on special nuclear materials, related to nonproliferation and anti-smuggling efforts. AMS (accelerator mass spectroscopy) measurement of long-lived fission products and U and Pu isotopes has the potential to significantly aid the field of forensic radiochemistry by providing new or more sensitive signatures and improving on the speed with which they can be determined. Expanding the suite of signatures obtainable form an illicit sample of special nuclear material increases the likelihood that its point of origin can be positively identified, leveraging LLNL`s impact on policy decisions regarding national security.
