The radiation is emitted by both the fission fragments (what the uranium atoms become after they split roughly in half) built up over the duration of the fuel's residence in the reactor core, and the higher actinides (what the uranium atoms become after they absorb a neutron and fail to split).The need to adequately isolate the radionuclides in used nuclear fuel from the biosphere was recognized at the outset of Canada's nuclear program in the late 1940s and 1950s, with research and development in this field progressing apace with the development of the industry.In fact, immediately upon removal from the reactor core, a used CANDU fuel bundle generates about 10% of the heat that it produced in the core, but this figure drops to about 1% only a day after removal, and less than 0.1% after a year has passed.The average heat generation of a fuel bundle at this point (one year) is about 100 W -- comparable to a household lightbulb.At this time the major hazard from the used fuel is no longer one of external exposure; for example, by these estimates, spending an hour about a foot away from a 500-year-old CANDU fuel bundle would result in radiation dose about 1/4 of the average annual background exposure, and thousands of times less than what is known to lead to physical harm.LONG-TERM MANAGEMENT However, a significant hazard continues to be associated with internal exposures (for example, from inhalation, ingestion, or absorption of long-lived plutonium isotopes), and therefore an effective long-term management strategy is needed to isolate the used fuel and prevent its uptake into the biosphere.INTERIM STORAGE Since used reactor fuel is compact, solid, small in volume, and stable in a water environment, interim storage is a fairly straight-forward process.Used fuel from each reactor is stored on-site in deep water pools used for cooling and shielding.

About three metres of water are sufficient to absorb the radiation emitted initially by the used fuel, while in the dry-storage phase about a metre of concrete suffices.As with many countries with a significant nuclear power program, Canada has focussed its research and development efforts for the long-term management of high-level nuclear waste on the concept of Deep Geological Disposal (DGD).

Night-vision goggles have helped us peer into the infrared and see light emitted from bodies, animals, objects in the form of heat or thermal radiation. They take photons, light particles, convert them to electricity, then beam them into your eyes as photons again.
