Abstract

In order to obtain Pu-doped zircon, (Zr,Pu)SiO4, with a maximum Pu content in the form of solid solution, zircon single crystals have been grown using the flux method from starting materials overloaded with Pu. The crystals obtained ranged from 0.2-0.5 to 3.5-4.5 mm in size, are transparent, and characterized by deep pink-brown color. No inclusions of separate Pu phases were observed in the crystals. The distribution of Pu in crystals is zoned and the Pu content varying from approximately 5 to 14 wt.% el. The zircon unit cell parameters calculated from XRD data of bulk powdered sample were: a=6.620(1); c=5.989(2). The results obtained allow us to conclude that the capacity of the zircon structure to incorporate Pu exceeds 10 wt.% el.; however, additional research is required to study the extent of solid solution, (Zr,Pu)SiO4, at higher Pu contents.
