Actinide research

Actinides elements are the backbone of nuclear fission technologies. They are used in many strategic fields, from space exploration to medical diagnostic and treatments.

As actinides are radio-toxic, it is necessary to carry out reliable safety assessments of their behaviour. This requires advanced understanding of the basic chemical and physical properties of actinide materials at a deep level.
