PNNL scientists created a collage of rare-earth micro-composites — yttrium phosphate and lanthanoid phosphate composites of micrometer dimensions generated by hydrothermal synthesis. These composites serve as surrogates for rare earth and actinide materials found at U.S. Department of Energy nuclear sites. Exploring these materials will provide insight into the soil-structure and spectroscopic behavior of complex actinide materials, and help design new technologies to clean up contaminated soils and groundwater. Image provided by PNNL scientists Dev Chatterjee, Tim Billman, Matt Edwards, Paul Macfarlan and Sam Bryan.
