Abstract

In the IAEA Support Program Task 00/SAL-005 the methods for separation of uranium containing particles by fission track-etch technique and development of SIMS method for the analysis of uranium containing particles have been reported previously in STUK-YTO-TRT 188 (2002). In this report the use of track-etch method for separating particles from swipe samples for the measurement of isotope ratio are described. First part of this report describes the separation of the particles and their analysis by ICP-MS and the second part the use of SIMS for the analysis of uranium particles.
