Physicists propose a new method for monitoring nuclear waste

New scientific findings suggest neutrino detectors may play an important role in ensuring better monitoring and safer storage of radioactive material in nuclear waste repository sites. Researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) in Germany have made calculations to ascertain the neutrino radiation that spent nuclear fuel emits. Their figures show that neutrino detectors could be useful in certain scenarios.
