Positron annihilation lifetime study of radiation-damaged natural zircons
Zircons are a well-known candidate waste form for actinides and their radiation damage behaviour has been widely studied by a range of techniques. In this study, well-characterised natural single crystal zircons have been studied using Positron Annihilation Lifetime Spectroscopy (PALS). In some, but not all, of the crystals that had incurred at least half of the alpha-event damage of ~1019 a/g required to render them structurally amorphous, PALS spectra displayed long lifetimes corresponding to...[Show more]
