Dear All,
Our work aims to expand the traditional nuclear forensics characterization techniques by measuring the oxygen isotopic composition of U3O8 to explore new isotope signatures for attribution. We investigated the effect of different syntheses conditions such as calcination time, temperature, and cooling rates, on the final oxygen isotopic composition of U3O8, produced from Uranium metal, Uranyl Nitrate Hydrate, and Uranium Trioxide as starting materials.
it will be our honor to present this work at this technical meeting on Nuclear Forensics.
