Title: Project Overview: LA07-LAB072-PD02

Abstract

The goal of this project was to identify and characterize sources of plutonium processing signatures, and understand how fate and transport impact these signatures, with an emphasis on establishing a foundation for the use of aerosolized particle characteristics as indicators of historic and current activities within a facility. Targeted activities included: 1) Pu metal reprocessing via direct oxide reduction, 2) Breakout of α-phase and δ-phase materials, 3) CNC machining of alloyed, δ-phase Pu metal, and 4) Low speed cutting of unalloyed, α-phase metal and alloyed, δ-phase Pu metal.
