The first measurements of63Ni produced by A-bomb fast neutrons (above ~1 MeV) in copper samples from Hiroshima encompassed distances from ~380 to 5062 m from the hypocenter (the point on the ground directly under the bomb). They included the region of interest to survivor studies (~900 to 1500 m) and provided the first direct validation of fast neutrons in that range. However, a significant measurement gap remained between the hypocenter and 380 m. Measurements close to the hypocenter are...[Show more]
