Hands-on-Training in Nuclear Forensics

The A-CINCH consortium would like to invite you to the Hands-on-Training in Nuclear Forensics. The course is organized by the Institute of Radioecology and Radiation Protection of the Leibniz University Hannover. It takes place on 30.08-01.09, 2022 in Hannover, Germany.

 

Summary

Nuclear Forensics is the examination of nuclear and other radioactive materials using analytical techniques to determine the origin and history of this material in the context of law enforcement investigations or the assessment of nuclear security vulnerabilities (definition of the International Atomic Energy Agency (iaea.org)).

In this Hands-on-Training, physical and chemical separation techniques are used to perform ultra-trace-analysis of radioactive material sampled in contaminated environments, e.g. after nuclear powerplant accidents.

This course is delivering basic understandings of sample preparation, analytical separation using auto- and electrodeposition, the use of scanning-electron-microscopes and ToF-SIMS measurements.

 

Structure

The Hands-on-Training will be held at the Institute of Radioecology and Radiation Protection of the Leibniz University Hannover.

Distance learning via CINCH Moodle (see and sign up at moodle.cinch-project.eu) will take place before the practical course, which is accompanied by theoretical lessons in person.

All teaching will be in English.

 

Practical Course

Determination of isotopic ratios and characterization of Chernobyl

“Hot-Particles” (nuclear fuel fragments):

•          Preparation of Chernobyl soil samples

•          Scanning-electron-microscope analysis of the samples

•          Extraction of single particles

•          Preparations for ToF-SIMS measurements

Seperation of radiosilver from radiocesium:

•          Ultra-trace-analysis in the presence of concomitant gamma-emitters

•          Autodeposion of radiosilver

 

More information can be found in the HoT course flyer. Please send the filled-in form to Tobias Weissenborn (weissenborn@irs.uni-hannover.de).

No course fee will be charged to the participants and a budget exists to support travel and accommodation expenditures of the participants.
