The intense gamma rays at 766 and 1001 keV are from the 238U daughter 234mPa, and are often used for the assay of 238U. Most of the weak gamma rays above 1001 keV also come @om 234mPa. (Ann.

Other sources of background are occasionally encountered, such as materials contaminated by radioactive tracers. Slag from steel furnaces, which can have measurable levels of ‘°Co, tid uranium tailings are used as a concrete aggregate in some ~eas. The use of such materials in buildings can contribute to background radiation levels. 4 has been limited to gamma rays that come from the natural decay reactions of radioactive nuclides; these gamma rays provide the bulk of the signatures useful for nondestructive assay.

9 shows a spectrum of depleted uranium; the spectrum shows the 238Udaughter radiations often used for 23*U assay. 11 are gamma-ray spectra of plutonium with approximate 240FUconcentrations of 14% and 6%, respectively. $e differences are used to determine the plutonium isotopic composition (see discussion in Chapter 8). 12 shows the characteristic gamma-ray spectrum of 232~ all major thorium gamma rays come from daughter nuclides. 2 Major Gamma-Ray Signatures for Nuclear Material Assay In principle, any of the gamma rays from nuclear material can be used to determine the maw of the isotope that produces them.
