NUCLEAR FUELS - CERAMICS UNDER EXTREME OPERATING CONDITIONS
Ceramic nuclear fuels were the first technological application of High Tech Ceramics. Although the development of nuclear and non-nuclear ceramics happened independently of each other, the approaches applied are becoming more and more similar. This is demonstrated by the current development of the mixed nitride (U,Pu)N as a future denze ceramic fuel for an optimised fast breeder fuel cycle and is compared with non-nuclear ceramics.
