The Boron-Carbon System: Quarterly Report No. 2, August 1, 1960 - October 31, 1960

Description: Abstract: A definitive investigation of the boron-carbon equilibrium system is being made by X-ray diffraction, metallographic, and thermal analytical techniques. Additional baron-carbon alloys have been prepared by sintering and arc-melting compacts prepared from boron and high-purity graphite. Metallographic examinations of these alloys are in agreement with alloys previously preapred from lampblack. X-ray investigation of sintered compacts indicates that the solubility range of boron carbide extends almost to pure boron. Boron of various purities has been annealed for times up to four hours, but no structure other than beta-rhombohedral has been detected. Very high purity boron (10 ppm impurity) has been obtained for the study of allotropy and the equilibrium relationships at very dilute carbon contents.

Discussion on Optimization of Large Oil-Pumped Ultra-High Vacuum Systems

Description: Abstract: "Discussion is directed toward eventual optimization of the largest diffusion-pump systems. Less than 100 diffusion pump fluid molecules per cm 2/sec are possible to detect using an accumulation method. Optimization discussed demands highest possible system speed compatible with the above contamination rate. Bakeable oil diffusion pump systems, with equal orifice valve-tap units, without conventional baffling, permit theoretical through-put speeds up to 0.3 of the system orifice. The average backstreaming rate of oil in two unconventionally baffled commercial pumps of 6-in. and 10-in. size is reduced to < 3 x 10-(-4) g/cm-2/24 hr, including heating and cooling the pump boiler. A Ho factor of >0.4 is maintained. Results on trapping with activated alumina, retained by a wire mesh, at both liquid-nitrogen and room temperature are included. A variety of pumping speed measurements and bakeable combination valve-trap units are discussed."

Development and Evaluation of High-Temperature Tungsten Alloys : Quarterly Report No. 3, April 1, 1960 - June 30, 1960

Description: Abstract: "High-tungsten alloys were prepared by powder metallurgy techniques. Excellent strength and ductility at room temperature were found in the W-Ni-Mo-Ry system and in W-Ni-Fe alloys containing platinum and/or ruthenium. The effects of prolonged annealing at 1600 F on room-temperature properties were studied; W-Ni-Fe-Pt-Ru alloys were least affected by this treatment. Oxidation rates for most alloys at 2000 F were 2 to 4 times that of unalloyed tungsten; an exception was a W-Ni-Mo-Ru alloy which oxidized at 1/5 the rate of tungsten. Slip casting techniques and induction-sintering of loosely compacted powders were used to produce compacts of W-Ni-Fe materials having section thicknesses of 1 to 2 inches."

The Boron-Carbon System: Quarterly Report No. 1, May 1, 1960 - June 31, 1960

Description: Abstract: A definitive investigation of the boron-carbon equilibrium system is being made by X-ray diffraction, metallographic, and thermal analytical techniques. Alloys are being produced by sintering pressed powder aggregates with subsequent arc melting. Alloys have been made at two atomic percent intervals up to thirty atomic per cent carbon. In the future, higher carbon compositions are to be investigated. Techniques have been worked out for the metallographic preparation of the extremely hard and friable alloys.

Development and Evaluation of High-Temperature Tungsten Alloys : Quarterly Report No. 2, January 1, 1960 - March 31, 1960

Description: Abstract: "Room-temperature properties were determined for W-Ni-Fe-Ru base alloys containing Cr, Mo, Pd, and Ta; highest strength levels were found in W-Ni-Fe-Ru-Mo compositions. Annealing for 250 hours at 1600 F produced a precipitate in the matrix phase and increased hardness in some of the tungsten-base alloys under study. Oxidation tests at temperatures up to 2000 F showed that additions of Al, Cr, Mo, Pd, and Ti improved the oxidation resistance of the W-Ni-Fe base. A fused coating of AMS 4775 protected a 90W-6Ni-4Fe alloy for 72 hours in air at 2100 F."

Microwave Diagnostic Systems and Techniques for Use in Controlled Fusion Research

Description: Abstract: "Microwaves have been used for several years at Lawrence Radiation Laboratory to study conditions in the magnetically contained plasmas of controlled fusion research. There are two basic microwave techniques. One gives information on electron density and distribution in the plasma, the other provides data on electron temperature. This paper briefly summarizes the established techniques, discusses engineering requirements and limitations, and describes some further applications of microwaves presently being considered."

Magnetic Recorder for Nuclear Pulse Application : Covering the Period from February 6, 1960 to April 5, 1960

Description: Abstract: "The accuracies which can be achieved in analog recording systems are for the most part tape limited. While reasonable variations in tape speed do not directly affect the accuracy, such variations result in improper tape tensioning, which in turn results in poor head-to-tape contact. The quality of the tape transport mechanism should be such that the error introduced by improper head- to tape contact is less than tape errors. Some additional equipment is necessary in setting up a tape recorder for a given experiment. The amplitude of the input pulse spectura to the recorder should be adjusted for optimum value and, if possible, the counting rate should be adjusted to obtain good tape utilization. An oscilloscope is probably adequate to satisfy both conditions."

Design Studies on Cesium-137 as a Source for High Level Gamma Irradiators : Quarterly Progress Report No. 3 Covering the Period from December 1, 1959 to March 1, 1960

Description: "Experiments were carried out on a Cs/sup 137/ plaque source of 40 x 40 x 1/2 inches. Measurements were made of dose distributions in water and of photon spectral distributions in paraffin. For 9-inch-thick water siab absorbers without air gaps, it was found from the preliminary experiments that the depth dose uniformity can be varied over the range 1.10 to 1.40. The absolute dose rates found were in general agreement with design predictions which indicate irradiator efficiencies in the region of 50% and dose rates in the region of 1 Megarad/hour for high-level indicators. (W.D.M.)."
