Tomsk scientist will create new technology for protection of reservoirs with nuclear materials
This investigation is sponsored by the grant of the President Program of Support of Jung Researchers. Each joint is unique — by checking it, one can validate the identity of a reservoir and prove whether it has been already opened. The security of such objects is not only the issue that radioactive substances do not penetrate the surrounding area but also that unauthorized access is excluded.
To check joint, researchers will use ultrasound. According to the Head of the International Research and Education Laboratory of Non-Destructive Control at TPU Dmitry Sednev, ultrasound has a number of advantages in comparison with X-ray methods of control, for example, it is free of ionizing irradiation.
