Title: Radiation Effects in Nuclear Waste Materials

Abstract

This research project is investigating radiation effects in glasses and ceramics at the atomic, microscopic, and macroscopic levels. By using experimental and computer simulation approaches, this research endeavors to develop the underpinning science and models necessary to assess radiation effects on the performance of glasses and ceramics designed for the immobilization of high-level tank waste and nuclear materials. The ultimate objective of this project is to provide the scientific understanding and rationale for developing improved glass and ceramic waste forms and to develop scientifically based predictive models for the performance of nuclear waste forms and stabilized nuclear materials.
