Observation of a high burn-up rim-type structure in an advanced plutonium-uranium carbide fuel
The observation is reported of a rim-type structure with small sub-grains in an advanced plutonium-uranium carbide (U(0.8)Pu(0.2))C fuel pin, which had been irradiated in the Dounreay Fast Reactor to a burn up of 8.3 % FIMA. This type of structure has previously been reported in high burn-up light water reactor (LWR) UO(2) and MOX fuels.
