Title: Surface Studies of Nuclear Waste Glasses

Abstract

GLASS is the matrix of choice of every major country involved with long-term management of high-level radioactive waste (HLW). There are many reasons why glass is preferred. Among the most important considerations is the ability of glass structures to accommodate and immobilize the many different types of constituents present in HLW, and to produce a product that not only has excellent technical properties, but also processes good processing features.
