INITIAL EURATOM EXPERIENCE WITH A PORTABLE MULTICHANNEL ANALYZER
Measurements of the 235-U enrichment of a series of U-30-8 low enriched (LEU) reference samples were performed using a portable multichannel analyser (MCA) equipped with a thallium doped sodium iodide (NaI(Tl))scintillator crystal. Such measurements were used to determine the most practical arrangement for routine in-field measurements of 235-U enrichment by inspectors. A series of routine 235-U enrichment measurements provide not only a basis for discussing practical problems encountered but also the possibility of commenting on the accuracies and precisions that might appear to be practically achievable under routine in-field conditions.
