The relative radiation resistance of zirconolite, pyrochlore and perovskite to 1.5 MeV Kr{sup +} ions

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Zirconolite (CaZrTi2O7), pyrochlore (VIIIA2 VIB2 IV X6Y) and perovskite (CaTiO3) are candidate phases for the immobilisation of rare earth elements (REEs) and actinides (ACTs) in various high level radioactive waste (HLW) forms 1. The effect of radiation damage on the structure and consequently on the durability of these phases is important to predictive modelling of their behaviour in the repository environment and risk assessment.
