Ceramic Plutonium Target Development for the MASHA Separator for the Synthesis of Element 114

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We are currently developing a Pu ceramic target for the MASHA mass separator. MASHA will use a Pu ceramic target capable of tolerating temperatures up to 2000 C. Reaction products will diffuse out of the target into an ion source, and transported through the separator to a position-sensitive focal-plane detector array for mass identification. Experiments on MASHA will allow us to make measurements that will cement our identification of element 114 and provide data for future experiments on chemical properties of the heaviest elements. In this study (Sm,Zr)O{sub 2-x} ceramics are produced and evaluated for studies on the production of ... continued below

In this study (Sm,Zr)O{sub 2-x} ceramics are produced and evaluated for studies on the production of Pb (homolog of element 114) by the reaction of Ca on Sm. This work will provide an initial analysis on the feasibility of using a ZrO{sub 2}-PuO{sub 2} as a target for the production of element 114.
