Abstract: In the present study, the suitability of Raman spectroscopy for nuclear forensics is proven by a specific investigation of laboratory-prepared synthetic and industrial uranium ore concentrate (UOC) samples, of different origin and with wide range of impurity content. Besides the identification of the compound type, the identification of process-related impurities observed in these samples is reported for the first time. Both handheld and laboratory Raman spectrometers were used in the measurements. The ability to measure different UOCs and the sufficient sensitivity of the handheld device demonstrate its usefulness in nuclear safeguards and nuclear security applications.
