Abstract

Since more than ten years, disperse UMo is actively developed in Europe as a nuclear fuel for high performance research reactors. In this time, significant progress towards a qualifiable fuel has been made. This article sums up the past developments, presents the current status and gives an overview of the developments that are still needed.
