Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are working¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬ with scientists at Sandia and Argonne National Laboratories in an effort to understand the formation of a uranyl hydrate phase that crystallized on a surface leading to this unusual structure. The structure was transitory and only lasted a few minutes before it altered to another phase. The impact is the role of radiation on the long-term behavior of spent nuclear fuel. Through modeling and experimentation we are developing a scientific basis for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel, a critical national need.
