A review of passive neutron coincidence measurements in the Euratom Safeguards Directorate
The different passive neutron coincidence measurement techniques used by the Euratom Safeguards Directorate are reviewed. The inventory of non-destructive assay instrumentation is presented, as are their different material and instrument-specific calibrations. The principle of unique material-specific calibrations for a given instrument type is described. A series of more than 300 assay results using one specific High Level Neutron Coincidence Counter (HLNCC-II) is shown and discussed in detail. A systematic analysis of the different sources of error in performing passive neutron coincidence measurements is presented.
