CeO$$_{2}$$はPuO$$_{2}$$の模擬物質として多くの研究が行われている。Dorrは(U,Ce)O$$_{2}$$の焼結に関して、ハイパーストイキオメトリ領域では還元雰囲気と比べて低温で焼結が進むことを報告している。しかし、試料の酸素/金属比は正確にはコントロールされておらず、(U,Ce)O$$_{2}$$と(U,Pu)O$$_{2}$$の類似性について定量的な議論はされていない。よって本研究では、(U,Ce)O$$_{2}$$と(U,Pu)O$$_{2}$$の焼結挙動について調べ、酸素欠陥の影響について評価を行った。

Cerium dioxide has been used as a surrogate material for plutonium dioxide. Dorr et al reported the use of hyper-stoichiometric conditions causes the start of shrinkage of (U,Ce)O$$_{2}$$ at low temperature compared with the sintering in reducing atmosphere. However, the precise stoichiometry of the samples investigated was not controlled or otherwise monitored, preventing any quantitative conclusions regarding the similarities or differences between (U,Ce)O$$_{2}$$ and (U,Pu)O$$_{2}$$. The motivation for the present work is therefore to compare the sintering behavior of MOX and the (U,Ce)O$$_{2}$$ MOX surrogates under controlled atmospheres to assess the role of oxygen defects on densification in both systems.
