The Effect of Gases on the Wetting of Steels by Liquid Bismuth

Description: The effect of air, nitrogen, helium, argon, and a mixture of twenty volume percent of hydrogen in argon on the wetting of a stainless steel (Type 446), a two percent chromium-one half percent molybdenum type steel, and a plain carbon type steel by liquid bismuth was investigated

Recent Total Neutron Yield Measurements

Description: The report summarizes results obtained since September, 1951, by total neutron yield experiments using 190 Mev deuterons and the MnSo4 tank method (UCRL-1375 and UCRL-1480). A new method of beam monitoring has resulted in establishing firmly the absolute yield for solid uranium and thorium primary targets backed by a solid uranium secondary. The beam monitoring was done by using a primary target built into a faraday cup. This method circumvents errors caused by recombination in the ionization chambers used previously.

Relative Yields of Nitrogen-17 Produced by 190-Mev Deuteron Bombardment

Description: "Yields of N¹⁷ relative to that produced in LiF have been measured in the 190-Mev deflected deuteron and the 380-Mev alpha beams of the 184-inch synchrocyclotron. The measurements have been performed in all the light elements from 0 through V, with the exception of Sc and the noble gases. In addition, yields were measured in the separated isotopes of Mg...Comparisons are made with other types of yield studies performed with neutrons and protons, and the areas of agreement are noted."

Excitation Functions for Reactions of Bev Protons on Indium (Master's Thesis)

Description: Abstract: "Indium was bombarded with protons in the energy range 2 to 6 Bev. Cross sections are reported for the (p,px+), (p,pn), and (p,p') reactions, as well as those for the formation of Be-7 and several neutron deficient isotopes of cadmium and indium. It was found that the (p,pn) yield increases slowly in the energy range 2 to 6 Bev, while the (p,px+) and (p,p') yields are approximately constant. The variation of the (p,pn) and (p,px+) yields with target thickness is discussed. The yields of several isomeric levels are correlated with their nuclear spin."

Off-Gas Treatment in Berkeley Enclosures

Description: "In the past ten years quantities of alpha-, beta-, gamma- and neutron-emitting isotopes handled in enclosures have increased from microcuries to kilocuries. Contaminated-atmosphere problems have increased accordingly. Developments at Berkeley are reviewed with particular emphasis on recent equipment, viz: a multiple-purpose gas scrubber and a total-capture system for slug-dissolver off gas."

A Possible Test of Time Reversal in Mu-Meson Decay

Description: Report that discusses the possibility of testing the T-invariance in μ-meson decay. The author describes a past experiment performed by Lee and Yang, as well as the specifics of the proposed experiment to test the time reversal in μ-meson decay.

Nonadiabatic Effects in Single-Particle Orbits

Description: From introduction: "The containment of a charged particle in a mirror field has been studied analytically and numerically. Formulas are presented which give the change in the magnetic moment as it passes from one end of the machine to the other."

The Method of Moments in Quantum Mechanics ; The [Pi]-Mesic Disintegration of the Deuteron

Description: The following report contains two reports to summarize a thesis: first, a report describing the classical moment techniques of Tchebycheff, Markov, and Stieltjes that have been applied to the problem of diagonalizing the Hamiltonian operator; and the second report describes an investigation of the higher-order corrections to the mesic disintegration of deuterons that is considered.

Compton Scattering on Nucleons

Description: From introduction: "The present paper deals with a classical calculation in which some of the meson effects can be included to all orders in the meson-nucleon coupling coupling constant, in particular those having to do with the gyration of the nucleon spin and isotopic spin. Such a treatment leads to results qualitatively different from the weak coupling calculations."

The Rf System of the Bevatron

Description: Report discussing details of the design for the Bevatron at the University of California Radiation Laboratory. The Bevatron is a "6-billion-electron-volt (Bev) proton synchotron. This device will receive a 10-million-electron-volt (Mev) proton beam from a linear accelerator, and further accelerate a reasonable percentage of these protons, at a nominally constant radius of 600 inches, to a final energy greater than 6 Bev."

The Concept of Sets Enchained by a Stochastic Process and Its Use in Cascade Shower Theory

Description: From abstract: "In the present paper, the above methodology is investigated stochastic processes in general and it is shown how certain choices of sets can be made which preserve the linearity properties, though not necessarily the Markovian principles"
