Fundamentals of Non-Destructive Assay for International Safeguards

-
Los Alamos National Laboratory

Description: This course is an introduction to non-destructive assay (NDA) measurement techniques that may be used for nuclear material accountancy by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) or within a State’s System of Accounting and Control (SSAC). The course is designed to teach students the fundamentals of gamma-ray detection and provide an introduction to neutron detection. The course will explore the application of NDA measurements techniques typically used for international safeguards.

IAEA Tomography Reconstruction and Analysis Challenge

-
Vienna, Austria

Verification of nuclear material is paramount in the overall effectiveness of nuclear safeguards. The IAEA is trying to improve the verification process of spent nuclear fuel with advanced data processing techniques. A spent fuel assembly (SFA) can be approximated as a set of 3 m long fuel pins, each about 1 cm in diameter, filled with highly radioactive material. The Passive Gamma Emission Tomography (PGET) instrument was developed by the IAEA, in collaboration with several Member States, for the verification of spent nuclear fuel.
