Title: Final report: Understanding influence of thermal history and glass chemistry on kinetics of phase separation and crystallization in borosilicate glass-ceramic waste forms for aqueous reprocessed high level waste

Abstract

This report provides an overview of the research activities conducted over the three-year period, October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2018. The project consisted of the US DOE component and a parallel project funded by the UK’s EPSRC. The US project is reported here, with some overview of the UK project results. The project was designed to be highly collaborative, including work in the US by Washington State University and Rutgers University, and in the UK by the University of Sheffield and the University of Warwick. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory supported the US project with some synthesis and some characterization. The overall program had two aims: (Aim 1) Understand fundamental mechanisms of the phase transitions leading to the conversion of melt to multiphase glass-ceramic as a function of composition and cooling rate; (Aim 2) Understand influence of glass chemistry on kinetics of phase separation and crystallization. This report includes the summary of the project objectives, approaches, results and deliverables.
