Identification of the radionuclides in spent nuclear fuel that may be detected by Compton suppression and gamma-gamma coincidence methods
MetadataShow full item record
The nuclides present in spent nuclear fuel are categorized according to their capacity for detection by Compton suppression or gamma-gamma coincidence methods. The fifty nuclides with the highest activities in spent fuel are identified, their decay schemes analyzed, and the best detection scheme for each is recommended.
