Transmuting minor actinides with thermal reactor neutrons

The closure of uranium-based fuel cycle assumes that Uranium and Plutonium are extracted from the spent fuel. Among remaining heavy nuclides, the most radioactive are minor actinides. One of the concepts to reduce the reprocessed fuel radioactivity is the repeated long-term irradiation of minor acti...
