Abstract

Concepts of inert-matrix fuels for Americium transmutation are discussed. It is demonstrated that a 'hybrid' fuel design consisting in a dispersion of an americium-bearing phase in an inert matrix, is desirable. More than a solid solution is preferred in order to localize within a small volume the damage in the matrix due to fission fragments
