Abstract  

Photofission and electrofission cross sections for fissionable isotopes of uranium, thorium, plutonium and other actinides have been known for several decades. Published data on electrofission and photofission reactions for energies lower than 60 MeV indicate that the238U cross sections range from a fraction of one mbarn up to about 2.0 mbam for the first of these reactions, and for the second is about 150 nbarn. However, the use of photofission and electrofission as analytical tools to measure uranium, thorium, plutonium and other fissionable actinides is still quite recent. This work examines the potential use of photofission and electrofission to measure thorium, uranium, neptunium, plutonium, americium and curium in environmental and biological samples.
