Report Title:Development of a Resource for the Improvement of National Nuclear Forensics Gamma Spectrometric Core Capabilities (RINFOR)
Activity Acronym:RINFOR
Authors:M. Dowdall, Henrik Ramebäck, Mats Eriksson, Per Roos, Philip Holm, Kjartan Guðnason,
Abstract:The objective of RINFOR was provision of a means of enhancing or establishing core capacities of institutes, agencies or entities with respect to gamma spectrometric responses to situations requiring, or potentially requiring, some measure of nuclear forensic analysis through the generation of a suite of fit-for-purpose materials. For the majority of states, the base capability level in addressing an incident involving nuclear material or requiring nuclear forensic approaches is grounded in high resolution gamma spectrometry using high purity germanium detectors (HPGe) in a number of configurations. Gamma spectrometric procedures, on a technical level, are fully capable of providing accurate information in relation to a number of important parameters pertaining to nuclear materials. RINFOR generated a set of synthetic gamma ray spectra for a variety of typical materials of interest in this context, at various ages since last separation. Spectra were generated for a number of detector types (Plan, LEGe and HPGe) and in a number of different formats.
