This NEA workshop is the third in a series devoted to the application of synchrotron accelerator-based techniques to radionuclide and actinide sciences. As synchrotron radiation is particularly well-suited for obtaining information about the molecular structure of radionuclides and actinide species, it is useful for understanding and predicting the behaviour of these hazardous elements in the environment. Application areas include risk assessment of nuclear waste storage, remediation of contaminated sites, development of effective separation technologies and radiopharmaceutical chemistry.
These proceedings contain all of the abstracts and some of the full papers presented at the workshop. In addition to presenting the latest experimental and theoretical results, the workshop also provided opportunities for knowledge transfer between established experts in the field and young scientists.
