Evidence for Subshell at Z = 96

Description: The evidence is decisive that major nuclear shells are completed at 82 protons and 126 neutrons (both represented by the nuclide Pb{sup 208}) and these, along with major shells at 82 neutrons and certain lower nucleon numbers (N or Z = 20, 28, 50), are well explained by the strong spin orbit coupling model of Mayer and Haxel, Jensen, and Suess. This model suggests the filling of quantum states at certain intermediate points, and there is an accumulating amount of evidence that such 'sub shells' are also discernible, for example, at Z = 58 and Z = 64. The evidence from alpha radioactivity, both (1) the effect of the nuclear radius shrinkage on the relationship between energy and half-life and (2) the discontinuities in the plots of energy vs. mass number at constant Z, gives a striking indication of the closing of major shells at Z = 82 and N = 126. Application of these sensitive criteria as tests for the much smaller 'subshell' effects in the regions Z > 82 and N > 126 leads to some evidence for such a subshell at Z = 96 (curium).

Elastic Scattering of 190 MEV Deuterons by Protons

Description: The elastic differential scattering cross section of 190 MeV deuterons by protons has been measured from 15 degrees to 170 degrees in the center of mass system. The cross sections were obtained by subtracting the carbon counts from those received with a polyethylene target. Part I presents a description of the experiments. Results are shown in Table IV and Fig. 3. Part II compares these results with those expected from theory by making use of a method developed by Chew. A summary of this comparison is given in Table VII.

STOPPING POWER AND ENERGY FOR ION PAIR PRODUCTION FOR 340 MEVPROTONS

Description: The relative stopping powers for 300 Mev protons of H, Li, Be, C, Al, Fe, Cu, Ag, Sn, W, Pb, and U have been measured. The results are shown in Table I. The energy spent per ion-pair production in the gases H{sub 2}, He, N{sub 2}, O{sub 2}, and A at 340 Mev proton energy has also been measured. The results are shown in Table II.

Carbon Dioxide Fixation by Green Plants

Description: Since the end of the war when the long-lived isotope of carbon, C{sup 14} became available a new tool has been applied in the study of photosynthesis. Because of the interest evoked by the tracer method, research in all areas of photosynthesis has expanded. There have been reviews on various aspects of photosynthesis such as the primary photochemical reaction, quantum efficiency products, and comparative biochemistry, many discussions of which were included in the monograph of The American Society of Plant Physiologists, ''Photosynthesis in Plants''.

NEUTRON-FLUX MEASUREMENTS IN A FLAT PLATE FUEL ELEMENT

Description: The equipment and experiments performed to measure the thermal-neutron- flux distribution in a fuel assembly of an experimental loop mock-up of a gas:cooled reactor at the Battelle Research Reactor (BRR) are described. The loop was located adjacent to the core of the BRR and contained one fuel assermbly composed of seven flat fuel plates each containing approximately 29.5 g of U/sup 235/. The plates consisted of a core 0.050 in. thick of UO/sub 2/ dispersed in Type 347 stainless steel and clad on each side with 0.005 in. of Type 347 stainless steel. The measurements showed that with the present design of the loop system an average thermal-neutron flux of 4.09 x 1O/sup 12/ neutrons/(cm/sup 2/)(sec) or a power generation of 45 kw in the assembly can be conveniently obtained. The ratio of the peak thermal-neutron flux to average thermal flux in the entire element was found to be 1.87. At any horizontal cross section, thermal-flux depression from the edge of the element to the center of less than a factor of two was observed for the final loopcore arrangement. (auth)

Geology and Drilling Recommendations Oak Spring Area Apache County, Arizona, and San Juan County, New Mexico

Description: Abstract: Uranium ore deposits on two exposed rims and past production records of tonnage and grade indicate an exploration program is justified in the Oak Springs area. A minimum of 24,000 feet of core drilling is recommended with a maximum of 75,000 feet to be based on favorability as determined by subsurface studies.

A Preliminary Investigation of Triassic Rocks in the Lukachukai Mountains, Arizona

Description: Abstract: During the summer of 1955, two test holes were drilled into the Triassic Chinle Formation in the Lukachukai Mountains near Cove, Arizona, to obtain geologic information. Brief airborne and ground reconnaissance was made of Triassic outcrops near Cove. No anomalous radioactivity was found in the test holes, but chemical tests showed concentrations of heavy metals in conglomerate lenses in the Chinle Formation. Channel sandstones in the middle part of the Petrified Forest Member appear to be the most favorable for mineralization. The Shinarump Member, here underlain by a permeable unit, and occurring at depths greater than 500 feet, appears less promising for uranium exploration.

BEVATRON RESEARCH MEETING V - HIGH ENERGY NUCLEAR INTERACTION

Description: There are two different types of investigation of interest in high energy nuclear phenomena. One can observe gross effects such as the production of large numbers of heavy particles of different types, or one can study the elementary particles themselves which result from these collisions, for example, the kappa mesons, to determine modes of decay and the energy spectra of the resulting particles. This discussion will deal with the gross aspects of high energy interactions and will review the work of Fermi: High Energy Nuclear Interactions, Progress in Theoretical Physics, 5, No. 4, July-August, 1950.

Radioactive contamination in the environs of the Hanford Works for the period April, May, June 1949

Description: This report summarizes the measurements made for radioactive contamination in the environs of the Hanford Works for the quarter April through June 1949. This belated document is issued for the records to fill in the gap for the quarterly reports not issued in 1949 because of personnel shortage at that time. Although the data summarized in this report were already reported in the H. I. Evirons Reports for the months involved, it is still of value to study the data combining the three months of data which give better opportunity to evaluate the trends and patterns of the levels of radioactive contamination emanating from the various sources at the Hanford Works. This document discusses: meteorological data and radioactive contamination in vegetation, the atmosphere, rain, Hanford wastes, the Columbia River, and in drinking water and test wells.

"25" Critically Consultation with J. W. Morfitt : April 3, 1950

Description: Summary: "Criticality was considered impossible in any contingency encountered in practice under either of the following conditions which include no safety factor: (a) In any isolated cylinder not more than 5 in. in disruptor, if the total amount of U235 present does not exceed 7.5 Eg. (b) In an isolated vessel of any shape and size, if the total amount of U235 present does not exceed 880 g. An "isolated" vessel is one which does not "see" more than 0.1 [...] other vessels containing fissionable material."
