ABSTRACT

In order to examine the in-reactor performances of very-high-density dispersion fuels for high flux performance research reactors, U-10wt.%Mo microplates containing centrifugally atomized powder have been irradiated at low temperature.  The U-10wt.%Mo dispersion fuels show stable in-reactor irradiation behaviors even at high burn-up, similar to U3Si2 dispersion fuels. The atomized U-10wt.%Mo fuel particles have a fine, uniform fission gas bubble size distribution.  Moreover, only one third areas of the atomized fuel cross-sections at 70at.% burn-up show fission gas bubble-free zones.  This appears the result of segregation into high Mo and low Mo.
