3He Alternatives Summary Report
Most of the 3He consumed by neutron-based safeguards assay systems is used in neutron coincidence and neutron multiplicity counting systems. Detection methods for the limited number of total neutron counting applications are not considered in this report, but it is believed that the boron-lined tubes [1, 2] already developed for portal monitoring applications will serve as a suitable replacement for those measurements. In this report, we discuss the potential replacement technologies that are most suitable for use in safeguards applications.
