Water corrosion of spent nuclear fuel: radiolysis driven dissolution at the UO2/water interface
X-ray diffraction has been used to probe the radiolytic corrosion of uranium dioxide. Single crystal thin films of UO2 were exposed to an intense X-ray beam at a synchrotron source in the presence of water, in order to simultaneously provide radiation fields required to split the water into highly oxidising radiolytic products, and to probe the crystal structure and composition of the UO2 layer, and the morphology of the UO2/water interface. By modeling the electron density, surface roughnessdoi:10.1039/c4fd00254g pmid:25932469 fatcat:bbt5q5hnybbunnynr6nbgsvp2q
