Title: PHASE EQUILIBRIA IN MOLTEN SALT BREEDER REACTOR FUELS. I. THE SYSTEM LiF- BeF$sub 2$-UF$sub 4$-ThF$sub 4$

Abstract

The phase equilibrium relations for the systems limiting the quaternary system LiF--BeF/sub 2/--UF/sub 4/--ThF/sub 4/ are described in detail, along with available information on the quaternary system itself. The implications of the extensive solid solutions in the limiting systems are discussed, and experimental information supporting the conclusions is presented. The optical properties, crystallographic properties, and x-ray diffraction patterns for the phases occurring in these systems are tabulated. Specific compositions of project interest to which references have been made in the ORNL literature are given special attention. Reference is made to literature reporting properties of these materials other than those discussed in this report. (auth)
