Mass spectrometric techniques applied to the determination of radionuclide traces
During the last a few years the Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU), has implemented its analytical capabilities in support of the 93+2 program. Upon specific requests, analytical methods have been developed and commercial instrumentation modified to increase sensitivity, accuracy and precision of the results. Methods for bulk analysis of trace radioisotopes and for particle identification and characterization are now available at ITU. Particularly those methods based on mass spectrometric detection are exploited in combination with other non-radiometric and radiometric techniques such as electron probe microanalysis, gamma-spectrometry and liquid scintillation counting, to obtain chemical and isotopic characterization of environmental samples.
