Nuclear fission splits a heavy nucleus such as uranium or plutonium into two lighter nuclei, which are called fission products. Yield refers to the fraction of a fission product produced per fission. Yield can be broken down by: Individual isotope Chemical element spanning several isotopes of different mass number but same atomic number. Nuclei of a given mass number regardless of atomic number. Known as "chain yield" because it represents a decay . So the yield of 2 kg HE corresponds to some 3 x 10**17 fis- sions, equivalent to 10** or e**40, or 58 doublings. A typical nuclear yield of 20 Kt is evidently larger by a factor 10**7 than is a yield of 2 kg of HE, corresponding to another 16 factors of "e", or 23 more doublings.
The counting of delayed neutrons emitted by fission is presented as a valuable technique for the measurement of uranium concentrations in a variety of matrices. The concentrations successfully analyzed can vary from well under one part per million to the high concentrations found in uranium : R. I. Scherpelz. The total yield of delayed neutrons per fission, v d, depends on: Isotope, that is fissioned. Energy of a neutron that induces fission. Variation among individual group yields is much greater than variation among group periods. In reactor kinetic calculations it is convenient to use relative units usually referred to as delayed neutron fraction.
In accordance with an embodiment, a method of examining contents of an object is disclosed comprising conducting a first examination of an object, checking for the presence of delayed neutrons if the first examination indicates that suspect material is present, and determining whether the object contains nuclear material based, at least in part, on the by: Full text of "Spectroscopy with Imaging Applications in Chemistry and Biology" See other formats.

In JEF2, the delayed neutron yield for U  and Pu  has been evaluated using LENDEL's model  and vp(E) evaluated data, while the evaluation of the U delayed yield  was purely phenomenological and based on an analysis of the experimental by: The total yield of the fission neutrons (average number of neutrons, n) is the sum of the yield of the prompt and the delayed neutrons (n p, and n d): n=np+nk The delayed-neutron fraction is defined as: b n n =k.

The results of measurements of the total yield of delayed neutrons from Th fission by – MeV neutrons in a setup in the ion guide of the KG electrostatic accelerator at the Physics and Power Engineering Institute are presented.
Two types of measurements are performed in the experiments. In the first type, the relative yield of delayed neutrons is : V. Piksaikin, A. Egorov, K. Mitrofanov, A. Goverdovski. Absorption spectroscopy of uranium plasma for remote isotope analysis of next-generation nuclear fuel 89 Fig.

One portion of the sample is irradiated in a reactor and the delayed neutrons are counted. Another portion of the sample is mixed with B4 C powder absorbing the thermal neutrons, and irradiated in the same position. From those data, both uranium and thorium can be calculated when a Cited by: High-Energy Delayed Gamma Spectroscopy for Spent Nuclear Fuel Assay Article in IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science 58(1) - March with 59 Reads How we measure 'reads'.
Introduction. The nondestructive analysis (NDA) is the most common and a well-utilized technique which can be performed by either gamma spectroscopy or delayed neutron measurement for burnup and cooling time determination of spent fuel.This technique is also used for discriminating mixed oxide (MOX) fuel from uranium dioxide (UO 2) fuel using gamma spectroscopy and multivariate Cited by: 1.

Uranium ( U) was determined in smokeless tobacco using delayed neutron counting analysis. Samples were irradiated thermally in a nuclear reactor (flux of 8 × 10 12 neutrons/cm 2 /s), and the delayed neutrons that were produced were counted to determine the concentration of U by comparison with standards.

nium fast fissions do not occur since nearly all of the delayed neutrons are emitted below the uranium fission energy threshold ( MeV). Therefore, interaction of delayed neutrons with fast fissions in uranium is a very small effect in uranyl fluoride solution reactors that are essentially thermal : D.
