Laying the Foundation for Cleaner Nuclear Energy
Many people are asking if better materials can be designed for the safe, permanent disposal of nuclear waste? Perhaps the question that should be addressed is not “How can society safely store the dangerous radioactive waste generated by nuclear power plants?” but “Can much of the radioactive waste be recycled into useful fuel, so that storage is less of an issue?” This is one of the basic questions that faculty in the Center for Materials Science of Actinides, a national Energy Frontier Research Center, have been actively pursuing. More specifically, they are seeking ways to control the behavior of uranium and other actinides at the nano-scale to achieve greener and more efficient nuclear energy
