Nuclear Proliferation with Particle Accelerators

R. Scott Kemp, "Nuclear Proliferation with Particle Accelerators," Science & Global Security, 13, no. 3, (2005): 183-207.
The use of accelerators to produce 239Pu or 233U is compared to the production of these materials in a small nuclear reactor. The comparison is given in terms relevant to an entry-level proliferator. Production rates, technological complexity, methods of acquisition, costs, and detection methods are compared.
