Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D)
Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) of nuclear facilities is becoming a major effort worldwide, covering everything from early R&D facilities to first generation nuclear power plants, weapons and fuel fabrication facilities and research reactors. The measurement needs for D&D can typically be broken down into a few categories including: measurements in place (In Situ), sorting of materials into waste disposal categories, quantification of materials for shipment to a waste disposal site, and verification of materials as clean for general release.
