A Study of the Celestial Gamma-ray Flux

A Study of the Celestial Gamma-ray Flux

Date: June 1967
Creator: Keath, Edwin P. (Edwin Paul),1938-
Description: This thesis is a study of the celestial gamma-ray flux. It reviews several of the proposed mechanisms for producing high energy gamma rays and describes several of the attempts to detect their presence. Also included is a short historical review of the spark chamber, along with a qualitative description of its operation.

The Temperature Dependence of Magnetic Susceptibility of Galvinoxyl

The Temperature Dependence of Magnetic Susceptibility of Galvinoxyl

Date: January 1968
Creator: Martin, John R.
Description: The twofold purpose of this investigation was to design and construct an apparatus for direct magnetic susceptibility measurements as a function of temperature and to provide the complete susceptibility characterization of the free radical galvinoxyl in the room temperature-liquid nitrogen range.

The Dielectric Constant of Galvinoxyl

The Dielectric Constant of Galvinoxyl

Date: May 1968
Creator: Mizell, Michael E.
Description: The molecules in many substances are know to undergo at characteristic temperatures a change in their rotational freedom in the solid state, signifying either a change in structure of the material of the onset of limited rotation of the molecule about some symmetry axis. The purpose of this research was to determine from dielectric constant measurements over the 100°K-420°K temperature range whether or not the organic free radical galvinoxyl and its diamagnetic parent molecule, dihydroxydiphenylmethane, undergo any such transitions.

Microwave Cavity Method for Measuring Plasma Properties

Microwave Cavity Method for Measuring Plasma Properties

Date: August 1969
Creator: Freeman, Ronald H.
Description: This discussion is concerned primarily with communications blackout during spacecraft entry into a planetary atmosphere. The gas in the shock layer, between shock wave and vehicle surface, ionizes from the intense heating which takes place in the bow shock wave and a viscous region of high gas enthalpy. This ionization may persist throughout the subsequent flow over the vehicle and into the wake, thus completely engulfing the vehicle and its communications elements. The problem will be to simulate a plasma model that will be of interest for hypervelocity reentry vehicles and to provide meaningful expressions for the various plasma parameters of interest (electron density, electron temperature, collision frequency, etc.) in terms of the microwave measurables (amplitude, phase shifts, frequency shifts, polarization, etc.)

Size Dependence in the Electrical Conductivity of Bismuth

Size Dependence in the Electrical Conductivity of Bismuth

Date: August 1969
Creator: Granstaff, Shelie M.
Description: In the present investigation, measurements were made at liquid-helium temperatures on single-crystal bismuth samples which had a stair-step geometry in order to study several thicknesses during one helium run. These samples were also thinned to extend the thickness range of the steps to a thinner region. In addition J.E. Parrott's theory is extended to include a diagonal anisotropic relaxation-time tensor and the effect of holes on the size effect. A discussion of the theory of Parrott, and the extension of Parrott's theory in connection with the experimental results is presented.

Recombination Rate Coefficient Measurements in the Helium Afterglow

Recombination Rate Coefficient Measurements in the Helium Afterglow

Date: August 1969
Creator: Wells, William E.
Description: This thesis describes a method of determining the recombination rate coefficient experimentally, which does not depend on a specific model of the recombination process. With this method established, results are presented for the recombination rate coefficient measurements at 44.6 Torr.

Application of the Wigner Formalism to a Slightly Relativistic Quantum Plasma

Application of the Wigner Formalism to a Slightly Relativistic Quantum Plasma

Date: August 1967
Creator: Harper, John H.
Description: A slightly relativistic fermion gas is described by the dynamical theory obtained from the Wigner distribution function. The problem is approached in a self-consistent manner including the two-body Darwin Hamiltonian. The goal is to find the departures from equilibrium and dispersion relations for wave propagation in the gas.

Gurevich Magnetomorphic Oscillations in Single Crystals of Aluminum at Helium Temperatures

Gurevich Magnetomorphic Oscillations in Single Crystals of Aluminum at Helium Temperatures

Date: August 1967
Creator: Mollenkopf, Howard Charles
Description: The Sondheimer theory was tested by looking for oscillatory phenomena in a group of single crystals representing a range in dimensions from matchbox geometry to thin-film geometry. The single crystals were identical with respect to impurity content, strain, orientation, surface condition, and probe placement.
