Short summary
Short summary
In Germany, a suitable long-term storage facility for nuclear waste will not be operational before the first cask licences expire. To support safety during extended interim storage, our research project investigates non-invasive monitoring of the cask inventory using radiation-based methods, which have shown promise in feasibility studies. Therefore, more detailed studies of gamma, neutron and muon fields are carried out via simulations and suitable monitoring systems are being constructed.
