Uranium beam characterization at CIRCE for background and contamination determinations

DeCesare, Mario; De Cesare, N.; D'Onofrio, A.; Fifield, L Keith; Gialanella, L; Terrasi, F.


The Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) is the most sensitive technique, compared either to the Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP-MS) or Thermal Ionization (TI-MS) mass spectrometer, for the actinide (e.g. 236U, xPu isotopes) measurements. They are present in environmental samples at the ultra trace level since atmospheric tests of Nuclear Weapons (NWs) performed in the past, deliberate dumping of nuclear waste, nuclear fuel reprocessing, on a large scale, and operation of Nuclear Power Plants...[Show more]
