抜粋

Spectroscopic measurement of the L X-rays emitted from transuranium elements is one of the most useful techniques for the non-destructive assays of nuclear materials. In this study, we fabricated a transition-edge-sensor (TES) microcalorimeter using a 5-μm-thick Au absorber and tested its ability to measure the L X-rays emitted from two transuranium elements, Np-237 and Cm-244 sources. The microcalorimeter was found to successfully measure the L X-rays with an energy resolution (full width at half maximum) below 70 eV. These results confirm that L X-rays can be identified using the proposed TES microcalorimeter to enable non-destructive assays of transuranium elements.
