Abstract: Fast reactor metal fuels containing minor actinides (MAs) Np, Am and Cm and/or rare earths (REs) Y, Ce, Nd and Gd are being developed by CRIEPI in collaboration with JRC-ITU in the METAPHIX project. The test fuel pins including U-Pu-Zr-MAs(-REs) alloy rods in parts of the fuel stacks were fabricated and irradiated up to maximum burnup of ~10 at.% in the fast reactor Phénix. At present the post-irradiation examinations (PIEs) are in progress at JRC-ITU.
