Abstract

The paper describes an analytical method for rapid categorization of nuclear forensic evidence based on uranium isotopic composition. The investigation of uranium-based nuclear materials seized in Hungary was carried out by inductively coupled plasma sector-field mass spectrometry (ICP-SFMS) applying laser ablation (LA) for sample introduction. The results obtained by the LA-ICP-SFMS method were compared with independent analytical techniques. The advantage and limitations of the method are discussed.
