Investigation of the Thermal Stability of NdxScyZr1−x−yO2−δ Materials Proposed for Inert Matrix Fuel Applications
(American Chemical Society, 2016)
Inert matrix fuels (IMF) consist of transuranic elements (i.e., Pu, Am, Np, Cm) embedded in a neutron transparent (inert) matrix and can be used to “burn up” (transmute) these elements in current or Generation IV nuclear ...
Investigation of NdxY0.25–xZr0.75O1.88 inert matrix fuel materials made by a co-precipitation synthetic route
(NRC Research Press, 2016)
Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is a material that is being considered for use as an inert matrix fuel in nuclear reactors, but a complete characterization of these materials is required for them to be licensed for use. ...
