The Impact of Crystal Growth Temperature on Zr Reach Crystalline Phase Formation in a Nuclear Waste Confinement Glass Ceramic

To contain radioactive waste, a variety of glass ceramics could be employed. Glasses containing radiation-resistant ceramics like zirconolites, pyrochlores, or pyroxenes are an example. The influence of crystal growth temperature on the development of the following phases in a nuclear glass ceramic system is investigated in this study: Al2O3-SiO2-CaO-MgO-ZrO2-TiO2. The materials with six ZrO2 concentrations…
