Generation of energy-tunable gamma-rays via Laser Compton Scattering is of great interest for scientific studies and applications of "MeV" photons which interact with nuclei. One of the promising applications of such energy-tunable gamma-rays is the nondestructive detection and assay of nuclides which are necessary for nuclear security and safeguards. We are developing technologies relevant to gamma-ray nondestructive detection and assay, which include a high-brightness gamma-ray source based on modern laser and accelerator technologies, and gamma-ray measurement methods optimized for highly radioactive samples.
