Title: Project Arrangement NP-06 Feasibility study of the applicability for future advanced Pu direct monitoring technology for Pu solutions with FP at reprocessing plants - Gamma-ray Analysis

Abstract

This report summarizes the efforts to investigate the gamma-ray radiation signatures present in High Active Liquid (HAL) to determine the feasibility of developing advanced plutonium monitoring technology for plutonium to improve safeguards verification measurements and nuclear material accountancy at the Tokai Reprocessing Plant. This includes the development of MCNP models of a waste tank and ion chamber and using experimental results to benchmark the model. With this model the expected dose rate and gamma radiation signatures could be determined for various volumes of liquid waste in the tank.
