Quality management of gamma-ray isotopic measurements

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Reliable knowledge of the quality or the accuracy and precision of a measurement is important for data evaluation and planning inspection strategies. The auditing of nuclear material accounts requires accepted performance information on the measurements used for the accounting data. It is also important to know what measurement equipment and conditions are necessary to achieve a certain level of quality in the measurement results. Information on the quality of gamma-ray isotopic measurements that can be obtained under various measurement conditions is obtained through inter-comparison exercises, laboratory or field measurement exercises, and tailored laboratory experiments. For these evaluations to be useful, ... continued below

Description

Reliable knowledge of the quality or the accuracy and precision of a measurement is important for data evaluation and planning inspection strategies. The auditing of nuclear material accounts requires accepted performance information on the measurements used for the accounting data. It is also important to know what measurement equipment and conditions are necessary to achieve a certain level of quality in the measurement results. Information on the quality of gamma-ray isotopic measurements that can be obtained under various measurement conditions is obtained through inter-comparison exercises, laboratory or field measurement exercises, and tailored laboratory experiments. For these evaluations to be useful, the nuclear materials used in them must have well- characterized isotopic information. In this paper, we discuss measurement equipment and conditions required, reference material standards available and needed, and analysis modification procedures for managing the quality of gamma-ray isotopic measurements.
