Waste measurement system

A passive neutron coincidence counter and a segmented waste assay system are combined in the integrated plutonium waste measurement system. The neutron counter measures neutrons emitted from the even plutonium isotopes while the gamma system measures the plutonium isotopics using the multi-group analysis code. The system calculates the total plutonium in sample drums ranging from 50 L to 200 L.
