Title: Direct determination of impurities in actinide matrices by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry

This document consists of viewgraphs only. The question is raised: can ICP-MS advantages be exploited (and disadvantages mitigated) to facility fuel analysis The following conclusions are drawn: ICP-MS has attractive features for actinide analysis: detection limits below 1 ppM are easily attainable, short-term relative precision is better than 10%, and judicious calibration gives <20% relative accuracy.
