Improving remote detection of radioactivity
After a nuclear power plant accident, for safety reasons it can be difficult for humans or even robots to get close enough to the facility to assess the situation. To get accurate information without putting people or equipment at risk, responders would benefit from better technology to sense radioactive material from afar. That could come from high-power pulsed electromagnetic waves, reports a team from Ulsan National Institute of Science & Technology (UNIST).
