Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are working with an electron microscope in an effort to distinguish the many components of a nuclear waste glass feed as they begin to heat up and melt together to form a liquid glass. Identifying the different components will help researchers understand the kinetics of the feed-to-glass conversion, which affects the waste vitrification rate and will ultimately allow the Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant melters to operate more efficiently.
