Standard Test Method for Determination of Plutonium Isotopic Composition by Gamma-Ray Spectrometry

Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 September 1995
Status: inactive
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Fissile materials and nuclear fuel technology): 27.120.30
scope:

This test method is applicable to the determination of isotopic abundances in isotopically homogeneous Pu-bearing materials. This test method may be applicable to other plutonium-bearing materials, some of which may require modifications to the described test method.

The procedure is applicable to sample sizes ranging from a few tenths of a gram up to the maximum sample weight allowed by criticality limits.

Because 242Pu has no useful gamma-ray signature, its isotopic abundance is not determined. Isotopic correlation techniques may be used to estimate its relative abundance (Refs 1, 2).

This test method has been demonstrated in routine use for isotopic abundances ranging from 94 to 70% 239Pu. This test method has also been employed for isotopic abundances outside this range.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
