Abstract  

A simple technique based on the measurement of the ratio of alpha-decay constant to neutron induced fission cross section for pure actinides using solid state nuclear track detectors (SSNTDs) is developed for the identification of the actinides in trace levels in pure solutions. The alpha-decay constant to fission cross section ratios for depleted U,238Pu and240Pu have been measured for the epicadmium neutron induced fission of these actinides. The measured values are (6.19±0.34)·106, (6.95±0.26)·1012, (2.12±0.95)·109 and (2.18±1.58)·1011 sec−1·cm−2, respectively. These ratios can be used for the trace level identification of pure actinides.
