Fingerprinting uranium: X-rays identify mobile, stationary forms of atomic
"(PhysOrg.com) -- Determining if uranium will zip through the soil or not is
easier now, thanks to scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and
the University of North Texas. Dr. Eugene Ilton and Dr. Paul Bagus elucidated a
systematic approach for identifying uranium's state and hence its mobility.
Their method uses x-rays, in the form of x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Their
technique and detailed analysis appear in an invited perspective article in
Surface and Interface Analysis. "
