POSEIDON - Position-sensitive detectors for nuclear fuel imaging
A feasibility study of a passive gamma emission tomography (PGET) device that makes use of state-of-the-art 3D position-sensitive semiconductor gamma ray detectors will be performed. During the first year, a Monte Carlo simulation framework will be set up and validated in measurements in Helsinki and Uppsala. After a 3-year activity, the benefit of 3D position-sensitive detectors for PGET applications such as the imaging of spent fuel, fuel irradiated in the context of the development of new reactor designs, fuel pin containers and nuclear waste will be established.
