Electro-assisted diamond based detectors for actinides spectrometry in aqueous solution
In the ActiFind project, we propose to realize a novel sensor platform to probe the activity of trace levels of actinide contaminants in water. So far, no system exists that is enabling the measurement of radioactive water in a portable, easy to handle system that can be established for early stage detection of “nuclear attacks” as well as for permanent water quality monitoring.The technique will allow saving substantial time during the analytical process by combining within one single device the following functionalities; water-pre-cleaning fluidic system to up-grate the liquid for characterization; electro-precipitating cathode used to accumulate actinides ions as solid hydroxides onto an immersed detector for alpha radioactivity monitoring; post-measurement cleaning of the sensor (“set-back”) for multiple detection applications.
