This work will demonstrate how ubiquitous radiological characterization can take place throughout all nuclear facilities for all nuclear material (even those facilities the United States does not know exist). The presentation will detail how this technology is passively integrated into current and future nuclear facilities. The fundamental physics utilized for such grandiose claims are thermoluminescence, optically stimulated luminescence, and electron paramagnetic resonance. These will be explained, along with how they can be used in nuclear nonproliferation and safeguards.
