|Abstract:||In this work the applicability of Fourier-transform infrared spectrometry (FTIR) for nuclear forensic studies of uranium ore concentrated (UOC) are investigated. The technique was used for the identification of the type of uranium compound and various process-related impurities, which can give information on the production method of the material. The measured spectra were evaluated also by statistical means, using soft independent modelling of class analogy (SIMCA) technique to reveal less apparent similarities between the measured UOC samples. Keyword: Nuclear forensics, Fourier-transformed infrared spectroscopy, origin assessment, SIMCA, uranium ore concentrate.|
