(Am,U)混合酸化物の電子構造と化学状態を評価するために密度汎関数法による理論計算を実施した。比較のため3価と4価のAm酸化物と4価と5価のU酸化物の計算も実施した。まず、有効電荷を評価したところ、混合酸化物中のAmは3価に近く、Uは5価であることが明らかとなった。また、電子構造を評価したところ、UO$$_{2}$$中のUがドナーとなりAmO$$_{2}$$中のAmがアクセプターとなりえることから、混合酸化物形成時にUからAmに電荷移動が起こっていると考えられる。

We investigated the electronic state of a CaF$$_{2}$$-type (Am,U) mixed oxide using the all-electron full potential linear augmented plane wave method and compared it with those of Am$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, AmO$$_{2}$$, UO$$_{2}$$, and La$$_{0.5}$$U$$_{0.5}$$O$$_{2}$$. The valence of Am in the mixed oxide was close to that of Am$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$ and the valence of U in the mixed oxide was pentavalent. The electronic structure of AmO$$_{2}$$ was different from that of Am$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, particularly just above the Fermi level. In addition, the electronic states of Am and U in the mixed oxide were similar to those of trivalent Am and pentavalent U oxides. These electronic states reflected the high oxygen potential of AmO$$_{2}$$ and the heightened oxygen potential resulting from the addition of Am to UO$$_{2}$$ and also suggested the occurrence of charge transfer from Am to U in the solid solution process.
