Title: Evaluating the Solubility and Homogeneity of Plutonium in an Alkali Borosilicate Glass

Abstract

Jim Marra of SRNL discusses methods of plutonium disposition including Alkali Borosilicate Glass and Lanthanide Borosilicate (LaBS) glass. These methods were tested and evaluated with special emphasis on plutonium solubility, its impact on glass properties, and behavior during melting.
