An investigation of the thermal stability of NdxYyZr1 x yO2 d inert matrix fuel materials
An important step in achieving a closed uranium fuel cycle is to develop new inert matrix fuel (IMF) materials for use in the burn-up of transuranic species (TRU; i.e., Pu, Np, Am, Cm). Cubic fluorite zirconia (ZrO2) has ...
Probing the effect of radiation damage on the structure of rare-earth phosphates
Synthetic analogues of naturally occurring monazite (REPO4; RE = La to Gd) and xenotime (RE0PO4; RE0 = Tb to Lu and Y) minerals have been identified as potential wasteforms for nuclear waste. High energy ion-implantation ...
Investigating the Geochemical Model for Molybdenum Mineralization in the JEB Tailings Management Facility at McClean Lake, Saskatchewan: An X‐ray Absorption Spectroscopy Study
(American Chemical Society, 2015)
The geochemical model for Mo mineralization in the JEB Tailings Management Facility (JEB TMF), operated by AREVA Resources Canada at McClean Lake, Saskatchewan, was investigated using X-ray Absorption Near-Edge Spectroscopy ...
A study of the electronic structure and structural stability of Gd2Ti2O7 based glass-ceramic composites
(the Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
Glass-ceramic composite materials have been investigated for nuclear waste sequestration applications due to their ability to incorporate large amounts of radioactive waste elements. Borosilicate- and Fe–Al–borosilicate ...
