Magnetic susceptibility of sodium disilicate glasses containing PuO/sub 2/. [4 to 300/sup 0/K]

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A solubility limit of approx. 6 mol % PuO/sub 2/ in sodium disilicate (Na/sub 2/O.2SiO/sub 2/) glass has been determined. Magnetic susceptibility measurements on these glasses yield approximate Curie-Weiss behavior, in contrast to the temperature-independent susceptibility of crystalline PuO/sub 2/. This result is interpreted to indicate that the local site symmetry around the Pu ion in the sodium disilicate glass is much different than in crystalline PuO/sub 2/. The effective paramagnetic moments determined from the temperature dependence of the susceptibility are found to be consistent with calculated free-ion values based on the most likely 5f electron configurations.
