Water Radiolysis: Uranyl Oxy-Hydroxide Hydrates with Cation Incorporation
The motivation for this research project is to gain a better understanding of the radiolytic behavior of a variety of irradiated hydrated uranium oxides. In order to meet this goal, a number of lab tasks must be performed. This includes synthesizing, characterizing, and irradiating materials. After synthesis and characterization of the materials, the materials will be irradiated in order to gather data and interpret the results.
