Abstract

The preparation and post-irradiation examination of minor actinide-containing oxide fuels used in the irradiation experiment SUPERFACT in the fast reactor PHENIX, have provided the opportunity to investigate the transmutation rate of minor actinides and the occupational dose during handling of such material. The experimental findings on the transmutation rates and the radiation dose levels, and their comparison with calculated values, are reported.
