NuSec Nuclear Security Detection Workshop


NuSec Nuclear Security Detection Workshop 2019

The NuSec Workshop on Nuclear Security Detection takes place at the University of Surrey on 15-16 April 2019 and is run by the STFC Nuclear Security Sciences Network. The event will focus on current and future technical challenges in nuclear security detection and the program will include keynote invited speakers, submitted talks, and poster presentations.

Next of generation RIIDs

Dr Adam Tuff from Kromek will present RIID’ing the World of Nuclear Threats: The Next Generation of RIIDs Radioisotope Identification Detectors at the event on 16 April as part of the conference workshop programme.

Efforts to counter Weapons of Mass Destruction drive the development of highly sensitive state-of-the-art radiation detectors that can rapidly and accurately classify the nature of nuclear threats through identification of radionuclide species with high certainty. The requirements for detectors such as Radio-Isotope Identification Detectors (RIIDs) necessitate a device that can resolve closely-spaced photopeaks in busy spectra, demonstrate high detection efficiency, and include thermal neutron sensitivity to detect the presence of fissile radionuclides that exhibit little or no gamma-ray profile. These devices also need to demonstrate versatility in order to function across a wide range of operations and in harsh environmental conditions.

Who are NuSec

The Nuclear Security Science Network (NuSec) promotes research and technology in Nuclear Security, with an emphasis on radiological detection techniques and systems. The Network is open to all Academic, Industrial and Government scientists and engineers working in Nuclear Security, and acts as a forum to encourage collaboration, networking and capability for all stakeholders.

The network is a three-year project funded by the Science and Technology Funding Council (STFC) and is managed on a day to day basis by a small team based at Surrey University. The operation and activities of the network are steered by members of Industry, Academia and Government through regular Meetings, Events and Funding Opportunities.
