Short description of the work
This stay was dedicated to the last measurements of KCMS (Knudsen cell mass spectrometry) and high-temperature drop calorimetry on four (U1-xAmx)O2 transmutation target samples (with x = 15, 30, 40 and 50%). The stay was also the occasion for me to be trained for the analysis of these results, notably those of KCMS. These analyses are now ongoing at both ITU and CEA. The results will then be implemented in the thermodynamic modelling of the U-Am-O system.
