Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This research introduces an innovative simulation software for nuclear forensics modeling. The software simulates fission tracks based on physical and radiation parameters, resembling light microscope images. These simulated tracks serve as foundational data for AI-driven decoder software and image analysis. The simulator also functions as an operator trainer and performance assessment tool. By connecting theory and application, it enhances nuclear forensics investigations, contributing to nuclear security and nonproliferation efforts. This versatile tool holds promise for deeper insights and robust methodologies in nuclear forensics, emphasizing the necessity of comprehensive validation using real-world data as a crucial focus for future research.
