Yttria stabilized cubic-zirconia (YSZ) is a promising candidate material for both inert matrix fuel and waste form based on its high solubility for actinides, high chemical durability and its reported exceptional stability under radiation. Because the incorporation of fission and other transmutation products during burnup may significantly affect the radiation response and the chemical durability of cubic zirconia, the solubility and mobility of the fission product nuclides in the inert matrix fuel at high temperatures (reactor fuel conditions) and low temperatures (repository conditions) are important. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
