For storage of fuel debris retrieved from Fukushima Daiichi NPP, it is considered to discriminate fuel debris and radioactive waste according to the amount of nuclear fuel materials. High energy X-ray CT is one of the non-destructive assay techniques to measure the mass of high-density objects like nuclear fuel materials with high throughput. In the previous talk, the material discrimination performance using twice irradiations of different X-ray energy fluxes was explained. In this talk, an energy-discriminating radiation detector was introduced, which was developed for applying to photon counting X-ray CT, in order to improve its material discrimination performance and throughput. The applicability was prospected through experimental evaluation of fundamental performances for high count rate X-ray irradiation.
