Uranium and Plutonium Spectra

Uranium Energy Spectra

Below are Uranium spectra taken with Amptek XR-100 Detectors. The spectra show the differences between 95% and 97% enriched levels of Uranium-235, natural Uranium Ore, and Depleted Uranium.

         

Plutonium Energy Spectrum

Below is a 94% Enriched Plutonium-239 Spectrum taken with an Amptek CZT Detector.
