A Bayesian method to localize lost gamma sources

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

A feasibility study of a Bayesian based algorithm for orphan source localization by means of mobile gamma spectrometry is presented. The method was tested on three types of gamma sources (137Cs, 133Ba and 131I) using a HPGe detector mounted on a vehicle. Estimates on source activity and source locations were within 51% and 29% of actual values, respectively. Further studies are required to validate and develop this method for additional source-detector configurations and gamma radiation background conditions.
