Title (EN) INVERSE RATIO OF GAMMA-RAY AND NEUTRON EMISSIONS IN THE DETECTION OF RADIATION SHIELDING IN CONTAINERS
(FR) RAPPORT INVERSE ENTRE EMISSIONS DE RAYONS GAMMA ET DE NEUTRONS DANS LA DETECTION D'UN BLINDAGE ANTIRAYONNEMENTS DANS DES CONTENEURS
Abstract:
(EN) The presence of radiation shielding material concealing illegitimate content in a container is detected by obtaining each of measured gamma-ray data and measured neutron data from the container, and comparing the measured gamma-ray and neutron data to expected gamma-ray and neutron data. An anomaly between the measured data and the expected data is an indicum of the presence of such material shielding such illegitimate content.
(FR) La présente invention permet de détecter la présence d'un matériau de blindage antirayonnements cachant un contenu illégitime dans un conteneur en obtenant des données de rayons gamma mesurées et des données de neutrons mesurées du conteneur, et en comparant les données de rayons gamma et de neutrons mesurées avec des données de rayons gamma et de neutrons attendues. Une anomalie entre les données mesurées et les données attendues constitue un indice de la présence d'un matériau de blindage antirayonnements visant à cacher un contenu illégitime.
