Abstract:

Spread of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of the spread of radioactive materials and nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events of September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma ray spectrometers are an important tool in homeland defense and monitoring to check the spread of special nuclear materials (such as highly enriched uranium and weapons grade plutonium) and nuclear weapons. An important challenge in homeland security monitoring is not only to detect hidden radioactive materials but also to distinguish them from routinely used radiopharmaceuticals as well as naturally radioactive materials. The goal of the proposed effort is to investigate promising new scintillators for homeland security applications.
