Production of transplutonium elements in the high flux isotope reactor (HFIR)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The techniques described have been demonstrated to be adequate to predict the contents of transplutonium element production targets which have been irradiated in the HFIR. The deviations, at least for isotopes of mass 253 or less, are generally within the usual analytical uncertainties, or else are for isiotopes which are of little overall import to the program. Work is especially needed to get a better picture of the production of /sup 250/Cm, /sup 254/Es, /sup 255/Es, and ultimately /sup 257/Fm, since researchers are frequently stating their interest in obtaining larger quantities of these rare and difficult-to-produce nuclides.
