Paper Title:
From Nanocomposite Aerogels to Glass Ceramics for Nuclear Wastes Containment
  Abstract

Nanocomposite aerogel is proposed as a host matrix for the synthesis of glass ceramics. The large porosity is used as a sponge to incorporate chemical species getting a two phases material. We describe the steps of the synthesis of glass ceramics for nuclear waste containment, from nanocomposite aerogels loaded with actinides surrogates (Ce and Nd). The glass synthesis is obtained without melting, by a control of several solid phase transformations: sintering, viscous flow, crystallization and foaming. Thanks to their high resistance to thermal shock and water corrosion, these glass ceramics are certainly good candidates as actinides containment materials.
