The EU-funded project CHANCE (Characterization of conditioned radioactive waste) organizes a webinar series on characterization.
Two webinars are planned at this stage:
- The first CHANCE webinar is planned on June 18th afternoon. The topic of this webinar is the Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy: Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) as an innovative technique to characterize outgassing of radioactive waste. During this webinar, a general introduction to CRDS will be given, as well as the recent developments with CHANCE. CHANCE WP5 aims to advance the use of CRDS as an innovative technique to characterize outgassing of radioactive waste by developing new instrumentation for H36Cl and demonstrating an application of the technique to the monitoring of radiocarbon outgassing.
- The second CHANCE webinar is planned on October 5th afternoon. The topic of this webinar is Calorimetry. Calorimetry is one of the solutions to estimate the overall quantity of nuclear material on a wide range of mass, from a few milligrams up to kilograms of radionuclides, by measuring the overall thermal power coming from the radionuclides due to the radioactive decay. Up to now calorimetry has been used mainly to quantify raw material (Pu and isotopes or 3H) for inventory purposes.

The webinar series is free and open to all.
