Probe Beam Deflection Technique as a Characterization Method for Nuclear Materials
MetadataShow full item record
Probe beam deflection technique (PBDT) was evaluated as a potential method of characterization for both radioactive and non radioactive materials. This method was chosen for its non destructive nature. The analyte of interest was UB 2 . Alternative fuel sources for nuclear reactors are being investigated as additives or replacements for UO 2 ; UB 2 was chosen for this purpose. CeO 2 was used because it is a surrogate for UO 2 . No correlation was found between signal intensity and Eu doping concentration was found.
