134. High Precision Isotopic Analysis of Actinide Bearing Materials: Performance of a New Generation of Purpose Built Actinide Multi-Collector ICPMS Instruments
Mr G.C. Eiden (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA)
7/9/14, 2:00 PM
Forensic trace analysis is advanced through the sensitive and precise measurement of isotope ratios. Such information has always been a critical component in nuclear forensic analysis, and mass spectrometry - traditionally TIMS - is the instrument of choice for low-level and precise isotope abundance measurements. A new class of inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICPMS) has...
136. Announcing the 4th Collaborative Materials Exercise (CMX-4) of the Nuclear Forensics International Technical Working Group (ITWG)
J.M. Schwantes (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA)
7/9/14, 2:20 PM
The Nuclear Forensics International Technical Working Group (ITWG) is a forum for informal technical collaboration among official nuclear forensics practitioners who share a common interest in preventing illicit trafficking of nuclear and radioactive materials out of regulatory control. Together, this community of scientists, law enforcement personnel, and regulators work to advance the best...

Introduction: The impurities of nuclear material vary slightly according to the produced method employed and local environment. By comparing the measured data to database information ,this characterisic information can be used to trace to the source of nuclear material together with other clues. Because of the complexity of emission spectrum, uranium will have a serious interferes on the...
131. IAEA Coordinated Research Project: Application of Nuclear Forensics in Combating Illicit Trafficking of Nuclear and Other Radioactive Material
Ms Tegan Bull (Division of Nuclear Security, International Atomic Energy Agency)
7/9/14, 3:00 PM
Tegan Bull, David Kenneth Smith Division of Nuclear Security, International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, AUSTRIA Nuclear forensics, as a sub discipline of forensic science, utilizes measurements of physical characteristics, chemical and elemental composition, and isotopic ratios of nuclear and other radioactive material, together with associated traditional evidence to provide...
