Thermal expansion measurement and heat capacity evaluation of hypo-stoichiometric PuO$$_{2.00}$$

Kato, Masato; Uchida, Teppei; Matsumoto, Taku; Sunaoshi, Takeo*; Nakamura, Hiroki; Machida, Masahiko

Linear thermal expansion of PuO$$_{2-x}$$ was measured by dilatometry in an oxygen partial pressure-controlled atmosphere. The measured data of PuO$$_{2-x}$$ slightly increased with deviation $$x$$. The linear thermal expansion of PuO$$_{2-x}$$ was determined as a function of temperature and O/M ratio, and the equation for the thermal expansion coefficient was derived. Heat capacity of PuO$$_{2-x}$$ was evaluated using this equation. The effect of O/M ratio on heat capacity was small. In addition to the vibration and dilatational terms, it is important to analyze the Schottky term in evaluating heat capacity of PuO$$_{2}$$.
