Abstract

Phosphate-based minerals are considered as potential nuclear waste forms because of their resistance to radiation damage when compared to their silicate counterparts, and their propensity to sequester actinides. Understanding the basis of radiation resistance in phosphate minerals is critical for determining the materials’ suitability for radioactive waste disposal and for underpinning the safety case of a waste form in a geological repository.
