Abstract  

Remote-handled transuranic nuclear waste poses a particular challenge for assaying due to the high neutron and -ray background that emanate from the non-fissile, but highly radioactive material, contained within the waste. The utilization of a Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) linac with a neutron flux of the order of 1010 n/s/4 has shown that, in principle, the differential die-away technique can be used to reliably assay this special class of nuclear waste.
