Abstract
Three techniques are described and compared in this brief review of neutron based technologies for the detection of contraband in cargo containers. These nuclear techniques can be used for explosives detection (physical and airline security), narcotics interdiction and manifest verification (Customs), detection of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons (arms control and non-proliferation) and radwaste remediation and pollution control.
