Abstract: We present experiments in which real nuclear fuel, cladding and containment materials are laser-heated to temperatures beyond 3000 K, while their behavior is studied by radiance spectroscopy and thermal analysis. These experiments simulate on a laboratory scale the typical formation of a lava-phase (corium) following a nuclear reactor core meltdown.
