Under funding from the Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy's Material Protection,
Accounting, and Control for Transmutation (MPACT) program (formerly the Advanced Fuel Cycle
Initiative Safeguards Campaign), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and Los Alamos
National Laboratory (LANL) are collaborating to study the viability of lead slowing-down spectroscopy
(LSDS) for spent-fuel assay. Based on the results of previous simulation studies conducted by PNNL and
LANL to predict potential LSDS performance, a more comprehensive study of LSDS viability has been
defined. That study includes benchmarking measurements, development and testing of key enabling
instrumentation, and continued study of time-spectra analysis methods.
This report satisfies the requirements for a PNNL/LANL deliverable that describes the objectives, plans
and contributing organizations for a comprehensive three-year study of LSDS for spent-fuel assay. This
deliverable was generated largely during the LSDS workshop held on August 25-26, 2009 at Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute (RPI). The workshop itself, also described in this report, was a prominent milestone
in the FY09 MPACT project.
Here’s what’s next.
