Report Title:Nuclear forensics within a Nordic context
Activity Acronym:NUFORNOR
Authors:Ole Christian Lind, Cato Wendel, Karl-Andreas Jensen, Lindis Skipperud, Brit Salbu, Henrik Ramebäck, Stina Holmgren, Linnea Ahlinder, Per Roos, Gísli Jónsson, Inger Margrethe Eikelmann, Anna Nalbandyan, Per Strand,
Abstract:The NKS NUFORNOR project was initiated to strengthen the competence of nuclear forensics and to increase the collaboration within this field in the Nordic countries. The seminar “NKS-B seminar on nuclear forensics in Nordic countries” was arranged in Oslo October 5th -6th, 2015, with 26 participants from 7 countries and 17 presentations. The goal of the seminar was to provide information on the necessity and suitability of novel analytical techniques within Nordic nuclear forensics as well as exploring possibilities for collaboration across institutions and borders within the Nordic countries. Furthermore, selected analytical techniques such as QQQ-ICPMS, gamma/X-ray spectrometry with post processing of coincident signals as well as micro-RAMAN combined with XRD were tested on relevant samples. Recommendations for nuclear forensics in the Nordic countries include the need to leverage on existing knowledge at nuclear and environmental research institutes and international cooperation. Furthermore, new analytical techniques such as rare earth element elemental ratio analyses, micro-RAMAN and synchrotron based x-ray techniques should be included in the nuclear forensics toolbox. There is also a need of reference materials and proper uncertainty estimation procedures.
Keywords:Nuclear, analytical tools, international cooperation, material out of regulatory control, attribution process.
