Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the use of high-power lasers to remotely process material for decommissioning and dismantlement of nuclear facilities. Process requirements are established and suitable laser systems are compared. The chemical oxygen- iodine laser was identified as the leading candidate for long term dismantlement activities because it offers a high-power, high-brightness beam that can be remotely delivered into radiation containment by optical fibers.
