This work presents an exploration of several techniques for characterization of unknown multiple substances using interactions of fast neutrons with certain isotopic species. The techniques considered use these interactions to measure elemental densities to indicate the type of material being studied. Issues to be considered for practical application in security technology are spatial resolution, dilution effects, and size and cost limitations.
