    Abstract

    It is often of great convenience to be able to determine quickly the amount of enrichment of a particular fuel element specimen. This is especially true in the fabricating and testing of elements where errors, even though unlikely, may occur at great cost in refabricating the materials. The technique described is a simple one requiring no other equipment than a scintillation detector equipped with a sodium iodide (thallium-activated) crystal, an oscilloscope, and camera attachment.
