    To understand whether laboratories can accurately determine the date of the production of uranium, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) organised a proficiency test through its specific inter-laboratory comparison programme REIMEP. The outcome of this exercise confirmed the participating laboratories' capability to perform this type of measurement.

    In collaboration with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), JRC scientists have measured the properties of a new type of liquid scintillator. With advanced digital electronics, a detector built with this material is capable of distinguishing between neutron and gamma radiation. This enables the use of the material for detection systems against illicit trafficking of radioactive sources and nuclear material (nuclear security), and for the quantification of fissile and special nuclear material in nuclear samples and fuel assemblies (safeguards).
