Title: CADMIUM-RARE EARTH BORATE GLASS AS REACTOR CONTROL MATERIAL

Abstract

A reactor control rod fabricated from a cadmiumrare earth-borate glass is presented. The rare earth component of this glass is selected from among those rare earths having large neutron capture cross sections, such as samarium, gadolinium or europium. Partlcles of this glass are then dispersed in a metal matrix by standard powder metallurgy techniques.
