Geological Investigation of the Trachyte District, Henry Mountains, Utah

Description: Abstract: Uranium-vanadium ore has long been known in the Trachyte district. Production started in 1913 and has been erratic and intermittent to date. Until recently, practically all production from the Henry Mountains area has come from the Trachyte district.

Mass Spectrometric Determination of Isotopic Ratio with Varying Ion Beam Intensity

Description: Summary: "An apparatus is described which applies alternate pulses from two ion beams to a galvanometer network. The isotopic ratio is read directly from a potentiometer. The comparison is independent of ion beam intensity. This method is not practical for application to the standard Nier assay instrument because of the low ion currents normally used. It is suggested that this comparison method may have utility in a spectrometer utilizing a high intensity ion source such as capillary ore or condensed spark."

Progress Report on Carnotite Studies; Carbonate Processes: September 1949

Description: This is a progress report on the carbonate process, compiled by the chemical development department of the Carbide and Carbon Chemicals Corporation's Y-12 plant, covering the month of September, 1949. In the previous month, the problem of immediate interest to the Monticello operation were listed. Projects that were left incomplete during that time were continued during this month, as well as a brief investigation of the process in which raw ore is leached with sodium carbonate, the sands and slime separated, the sands leached with acid, and the slimes roasted in a pellitized form.

The Diffusion Length and the Utilization of Thermal Neutrons in a Heterogeneous Pile

Description: Abstract: "An accurate calculation is given for the quantity which corresponds to the diffusion length in the theory of the pile. The procedure is to establish a relationship between the diffusion length and the change in thermal utilization from a pile with infinite sides to one with sides of a finite length. The calculation of this change in the thermal utilization is then carried through. Approximation to the answer and numerically exact calculations are given in the report. The results show that for radif very near the optimum values the exact diffusion length is slightly larger than the one obtained from the usual formula...However, over most of the range of radii the exact diffusion length is smaller than the approximate one."

Cyclotron Component Design Technical Reports

Description: From introduction: The study of cyclotron-magnet design presented here is directed toward attaining a large ratio of energy in the ion beam with respect to cost. Alternatively, the goal may be regarded as a smaller, more convenient apparatus. These two objectives are not completely incompatible; a design that is more economical than the usual is also smaller. The best design of a cyclotron can be obtained only by considering the problem as a whole. The conditions necessary to maintain an ion beam, the conditions required for the operation of the oscillator, and a host of other problems influence the design of the magnet. It is assumed in this paper that the "other problems" can be satisfactorily solved, if the gap has a suitable geometry and the field a suitable space dependence.
