Title: FUEL ELEMENTS AND METHOD OF MAKING

Abstract

A process is described of surface-impregnating bodies of metallic uranium with silicon. Silicon metal is added to or admixed with alkali metal selected from the group consisting of sodiunn, potassium, and sodiunnpotassium alloy. The uraniunn body is then immersed in the mixture obtained and the temperature is raised to between 425 and 600 deg C. The silicon is dissolved and deposits as a uranium-silicon compound on the uranium body.
