Scope Actinide and Lanthanide materials display broad and varied behaviors driven by self-irradiation, unusual electronic structures, allotropic phase transformations, challenges in processing, reactivity and many other factors. This symposium seeks to understand the fundamental and applied materials science of Actinide and Lanthanide metals, alloys and compounds from experimental and computational studies of structure, transformations, processing and manufacturing, properties, and applications.

Examples include, but are not limited to:
Phase allotropy, thermodynamics and kinetics in plutonium and it alloys and compounds.
Deformation mechanisms in low-symmetry crystals of plutonium, uranium and their alloys.
Self-irradiation driven property or phase stability changes in aging nuclear materials.
Phase stability in Cerium and its alloys.
Industrial manufacturing and processing science of Actinide and Lanthanide materials.
Material compatibility and reaction studies in less-common materials.
