Actinide Potential Model Updated to Allow Simulation of Mixed Oxides

Our recently developed model for actinide oxides has been extended to allow simulations of actinide solid solutions opening the way to simulation of mixed oxide materials relevant to nuclear fuel materials. Learn about v1.1 of the model on actinide potentials page.
