Assessment of the radial extent and completion of recrystallization in high burn-up UO(2) nuclear fuel by EPMA
Questions concerning the correctness of the Xe concentration measured in the recrystalized UO(2) grains and the reliability of the values obtained for the width of the zone of recrystallization in the fuel are answered. It is argued that since the Cs concentration is correct and since both Xe and Cs are determined simultaneously and under the same conditions the measured Xe concentration is correct.
