Summary: This book presents a state of the art summary of current analytical techniques and capabilities in respect of nuclear forensics. It encompasses both the identification and characterization of nuclear and non-nuclear materials in order to identify the purpose and source of nuclear material that is seized in illicit trafficking to determine the past history of the material. It reviews the analytical methods employed an...d how the properties of uranium and plutonium provide clues to the source of the material. Special emphasis is placed on classical forensic methods that aid in any investigation and the considerations in applying these methods to cases involving nuclear materials. Distinction is made between the ability to produce measurements and the ability to reach conclusions on the source of the material. The clear identification of the source of nuclear material relies on comparing the analytical results with known information about the nuclear material. The availability of databases with information on country-specific materials and packaging is an essential element of nuclear forensics. An assessment is made of the quality and accessibility of information libraries or databases. Finally, a look is taken at the international resources available for providing institutional support for nuclear forensics. Protocols and response options are presented. The focus is on how the newly formed International Nuclear Forensics Laboratories impacts the development of nuclear forensics. * state of art of analytical techniques and capabilities of nuclear forensics * highlights the applications of nuclear forensics * special emphasis on classical forensic methods [read more]
