Radiological Characterization of Activated Reactor Components

The radiological characterization of activated components of nuclear reactor – as a result of neutron activation – which always appeared with surface contamination, is essential for the decision-making process on their management during decommissioning. The need of decontamination, the appropriate method selected before the dismantling / cutting process, as well as the cutting techniques to be followed in order to reduce the production of secondary radioactive waste and limit the doses to personnel, must be based on accurate radiological characterization of the radionuclides inside the material and also those which are settled as surface contamination.
