Nuclear staircase

Using scanning electron microscopy, this image of the naturally stepped virgin surfaces of a nuclear fuel pellet, uranium dioxide (UO2), was captured. Such UO2 pellets fuel nuclear power reactors. Using various corrosion experiments, the rate at which radionuclides would be released from the UO2 pellets can be determined.
