Paper Abstract

Coincidence counting of time-correlated spontaneous fission neutrons from even-atomic-numbered Pu isotopes has been a well documented methodology for determining quantitatively the amount of Pu present in a waste container. This paper will show the results of subsequent measurements, the Pu gram equivalents, and coincidences of the presumed muon- initiated events versus the amount of Pb present.
