Abstract

This work demonstrates the formulation of glass ceramics for nuclear waste storage that increases the incorporation rate of problematic molybdenum in a stable crystallite without affecting physiochemical properties. It further tests the durability of this material when subjected to β-irradiation proportional to 1000 years of radioisotope decay projected during storage and hypothesizes a model for crystallite alteration. This result opens a new door to potential materials with increased waste loading efficiency and long-term structural projections.
