Abstract: This paper describes the performance of a 1.5 * 1.5 inch LaBr3 gamma radiation detector for determining the 235U enrichment by non destructive analysis. The spectrometric properties of the detector, brought to market under the trade name BrillanCe-380 [1] were first evaluated. Enrichment measurements were subsequently carried out on certified uranium samples with enrichment ranging from 0.31% to 60% and on UF6 containers of the type 30B and 48Y in different experimental conditions.
