Analysis of Radioactive Materials by Means of an Electron Microprobe Demonstrated on UO2—Mo and UO2-Zircalloy Fuel Cermets

  • G. Giacchetti
  • J. Ränsch


Microprobe analysis is a valuable complement to conventional methods for the analysis of irradiated fuel. It is especially suitable for the study of compatibility between fuel and cladding, diffusion and corrosion phenomena and to investigate the build-up of fission products and their distribution.
