Nuclear Physics and Gamma-Ray Sources for Nuclear Security and Nonproliferation

Proceedings of the International Symposium


Nuclear nonproliferation is a critical global issue. A key technological challenge to ensuring nuclear nonproliferation and security is the detection of long-lived radioisotopes and fissionable nuclides in a non-destructive manner. This technological challenge requires new methods for detecting relevant nuclides and the development of new quantum-beam sources. For example, one new method that has been proposed and studied is nuclear resonance fluorescence with energy-tunable, monochromatic gamma-rays generated by Compton scattering of laser photons with electrons.

Mathura: The Birthplace Of Lord Krishna - In The Prison Cell Of King Kamsa

The city of Mathura is now famous throughout the world as the birthplace of Lord Shri Krishna, who appeared in the prison cell of Kamsa five thousand years ago. However, long before this important event took place, Mathura was already well known and considered to be the holiest city in India. It is said in the Puranas, “Although it may be possible…

The development of new methods requires the help of researchers from a wide range of fields, such as nuclear physics, accelerator physics, laser physics, etc. Furthermore, any new method must be compatible with the requirements of administrators and nuclear-material inspectors.
