Experiment and simulation studies on physical properties of actinide oxides have been carried out. Thermal expansion is important data to evaluate the various properties from molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. In this study, thermal expansion of PuO$$_{2}$$ was evaluated by experiment and MD simulation. In the experimental study, thermal expansion of PuO$$_{2.00}$$ pellet was determined by a dilatometer in the temperature range of 300-1923 K. In the MD simulation, Born-Mayer-Huggins interatomic potential with a partially ionic model and Morse potential were employed. Lattice constants of PuO$$_{2}$$ were evaluated in the temperature range of 300-2800 K by MD simulation, and thermal expansion was evaluated. The experimental data was good agreement with the MD simulation result. Evaluation formula for thermal expansion of PuO$$_{2}$$ in the temperature range of 300-2800 K was derived from both data.

 Times Cited Count:8 Percentile:34.41(Materials Science, Multidisciplinary)

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$$_{2}$$.

Thermal properties of UO$$_{2}$$ by molecular dynamics simulation

Uchida, Teppei; Sunaoshi, Takeo*; Kato, Masato; Konashi, Kenji*

Progress in Nuclear Science and Technology (Internet), 2, p.598 - 602, 2011/10

Interatomic potential function of UO$$_{2}$$ was determined and thermal expansion, specific heat and thermal conductivity were evaluated by molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. For thermal expansion, a dilatometry was conducted and a measurement result was compared with a result of MD simulation. Thermal expansion value was in good agreement with MD simulation. Specific heat and thermal conductivity was also in good agreement with literature data when the supercell contained Schottky defects. Thermal conductivity, especially, was affected at low temperature range and decreased with increasing Schottky defect concentration. It was considered that vacancies scattered phonon vibrations. The interatomic potential function of UO$$_{2}$$ was considered usable.

Oxygen potential of (U$$_{0.88}$$Pu$$_{0.12}$$)O$$_{2pm x}$$ and (U$$_{0.7}$$Pu$$_{0.3}$$)O$$_{2pm x}$$ at high temperatures of 1673-1873 K

Many studies on oxygen potentials have been reported, but their data were scattered and the data at high temperatures are limited. In this work, the oxygen potential of (U$$_{0.88}$$Pu$$_{0.12}$$)O$$_{2pm x}$$ and (U$$_{0.7}$$Pu$$_{0.3}$$)O$$_{2pm x}$$ was measured at high temperatures of 1673-1873 K using gas equilibrium method using thermo-gravimetry. The influence of Pu addition on the oxygen potential of MOX was discussed. The oxygen potential and the O/M ratio were decided by in-situ analysis. The oxygen partial pressure was adjusted by controlling the ratio of $$P$$$$_{H_{2}}$$/$$P$$$$_{H_{2}}$$O in the flowing gas atmosphere, and the oxygen potential was determined. The oxygen potentials measured by the point defect model. The deviation x varied with the relation of in the near stoichiometric composition region. The oxygen potential increased with increasing Pu content. The values of stoichiometric MOX containing 12% and 30%Pu were determined to be -334 kJ/mol and -296 kJ/mol, respectively, at 1773 K.

Japan Atomic Energy Agency researchers have developed mixed oxide (MOX) fuels containing minor actinides (MA). These fuels were irradiated for ten minutes in the FBR Joyo in some short-term irradiation tests. The Si-condensed phases were observed at the center of the pellets in the post irradiation examination. Si impurities came to be mixed into the raw materials in the ball milling process, because Si rubber was used as the lining of the milling pot. Content of Si in the pellets was within the specification of the fuel. It is important to investigate the Si state in MOX at high temperatures like the reactor operating temperature of the fuel to evaluate irradiation behavior. In the present work, MOX specimens with mixed SiO$$_{2}$$ impurity were prepared. The ratio of MOX to SiO$$_{2}$$ was controlled at a mol fraction of 3 to 1. The specimens were first heated at 1973K in atmospheres of three different oxygen partial pressures to adjust the O/M ratio. Then these specimens were sealed in a tungsten capsule, and heated at 2273K or 2673K. Compounds consisting of Pu and Si were observed at grain boundaries of the MOX matrix in specimens after heat treatment. These compounds were not observed in grain interior and MOX matrix was not affected significantly by Si impurity. These compounds tended to form in specimens with low O/M ratio and in specimens heated at higher temperatures.

In the high-${it T$_{rm c}$}$ research, relationship between the pseudogap and the superconducting gap has been an important issue. We have performed a detailed temperature-dependent angle-integrated photoemission study of lightly-doped to heavily-overdoped La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ and oxygen-doped La$$_{2}$$CuO$$_{4.10}$$. We found that, while the magnitude of the pseudogap increased with decreasing doping, that of the superconducting gap did not increase. This behavior can be explained if the superconducting gap opens only on the Fermi arc around the node (0,0)-($$pi$$,$$pi$$) whereas the pseudogap opens primarily around ($$pi$$,0).

We have performed a temperature-dependent angle-integrated photoemission study of La$$_{2-x}$$Sr$$_{x}$$CuO$$_{4}$$ covering from lightly doped to heavily overdoped regions and oxygen -doped La$$_{2}$$CuO$$_{4.10}$$. The superconducting gap energy $$Delta_{sc}$$ was found to remain small for decreasing hole concentration while the pseudogap energy $$Delta^{*}$$ and temperature $$T^{*}$$ increase. The different behaviors of the superconducting gap and the pseudogap can be explained if the superconducting gap opens only on the Fermi arc around the nodal (0,0)-$$(pi,pi)$$ direction while the pseudogap opens around $$sim (pi,0)$$. The results suggest that the pseudogap and the superconducting gap have different microscopic origins.

In this study, thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of UO$$_{2}$$ containing Schottky defects were evaluated as a first step of evaluating thermal properties of MOX fuel containing MA by molecular dynamics simulation. Compared to thermal conductivity of perfect crystal UO$$_{2}$$, that of UO$$_{2}$$ containing Schottky defects were lower. It is considered that defect structures scattered phonon vibrations and thermal conductivity decreased.
