MeV photon imaging with robotic sample positioning at a research reactor [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
This paper summarizes the development and demonstration of an X-ray and gamma-ray radiography capability using a TRIGA MARK-II reactor. Photons are a combination of Bremsstrahlung X-rays and gamma rays from fission and radioactive decay. The energy spectrum of the facility was analyzed with a NaI(Tl) scintillator detector. A digital X-ray camera for use with MeV-range photons images a duplex wire-type penetrameter to analyze unsharpness and spatial resolution. An industrial manipulator precisely positions the sample, which allows objects to have larger dimensions than the detector’s field-of-view. Future work includes performing computed tomography to create 3-dimensional representations of objects.
