Elemental analysis of water and air solids by neutron activation analysis

Description: Instrumental neutron activation analysis was used to determine the elemental concentrations in water and air solids samples collected on Nucleopore and Whatman filters from the Walker Branch Watershed. The results from this study show that the trace element concentrations removed by water from the watershed vary seasonally, as well as geographically. The data point up the usefulness and versatility of absolute neutron activation analysis. The NBS Standard Orchard Leaves were assayed in a similar manner, and good agreement was obtained between results here and standard values. (auth)

The Determination of Trace Amounts of Uranium by Neutron Activation Analysis

Description: Abstract: "The determination of trace concentrations of uranium in synthetic materials, ores, soils and water by neutron radioactivation analysis is described. The principles of the activation analysis method as applied to trace uranium determination, the processing of irradiated specimens, and some examples of the results obtained by this method of analysis are discussed in this paper."

Neutron Activation and Other Analytical Data for Plutonic Rocks from North America and Africa: Appendix D. Microfiche Tables

Description: Tables of data containing the results of a literature search, a limited chemical analytical program, and visits to three alkaline-rock localities to accompany a report of the findings of establishing criteria for determining if a site had uranium resource potential. The criteria were applied to various sites in the U.S.; those results are also reported, with additional information about ongoing study.

The Identification and Determination of Trace Amounts of Rare Earth Elements in Graphite by Neutron Activation

Description: Abstract: "A method is described for the identification and quantitative determination of trace amounts of rare earths in graphite by measurement of the energies and decays of the activities induced by neutron irradiation. The specific rare earth elements identified are europium and samarium. During the development of this method, the half-lives of Eu-152 and Sm-153 were determined. These are reported as 9.32 +/- 0.04 hours and 46.34 +/- 0.23 respectively."

Preparing Oregon State University to Meet the Research Challenges of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership Final Scientific/Technical Report

Description: The OSU Radiation Center requested $100,000 under the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership University Readiness program to provide for graduate student support, reactor equipment upgrades, and irradiation support. A portion of the funds requested were used to support the graduate education of a graduate student for a period of one year. The remaining funds were utilized to enhance the irradiation facilities of the Oregon State TRIGA® Reactor as well as to offset the costs of irradiations for initial investigations where grant funding is not available. The focus of this effort was to create an environment that would enhance facilities and equipment at Oregon State University which emphasize GNEP related themes, specifically material science analytical capabilities for the next generation of nuclear reactors. These enhancements included development of a prompt gamma neutron activation analysis analytical capability, digital reactor data logging, electronic dosimetry for researchers, replacement of sample grapples, and irradiation/analytical services.

The Application of Neutron-Activation Analysis to the Determination of Leach Rates of Simulated Nuclear-Waste Forms

Description: The application of neutron activation analysis to the determination of element release from simulated nuclear waste forms during leaching is described for several different glasses. Potential neutron irradiation effects are discussed, and it is shown, by a series of leach tests on activated and non-activated glass samples, that neutron irradiation has no discernible effect on the release of silicon and cesium during leaching. The radioisotopes best suited for analysis with this method and their associated detection limits are identified, and the method's applicability to waste forms other than glass is discussed.

Description: A method and apparatus were devised to irradiate multiple samples of large physical size simultaneously in a nonuniform neutron flux. A capsule containing the samples and flux monitors is rotated about an axis at constant speed with samples fixed in a symmetrical geometry so that each position receives the same integrated neutron flux.

Geologic Features of Areas of Abnormal Radioactivity South of Ocala, Marion County, Florida

Description: From abstract: Areas of abnormal radioactivity south of Ocala, Marion County, Fla., discovered in 1953 by aerial survey, were investigated by surface examination and by 10 power auger drill holes. Interbedded clay, clayey sand, and uraniferous phosphorite occur in the areas of anomalous radioactivity. Miocene fossils occur at three localities in these beds which are evidently outliers of Miocene sediments on the Ocala limestone of Eocene age. The preserved outliers are southwest of the main belt of Miocene sediments. The principal uraniferous rocks are clayey, sandy, pellet phosphorite that occurs in beds a few feet thick, and very porous, phosphatic sand rock which makes abundant float at many places. Apatite forms the phosphate pellets in the unweathered phosphorite. The very porous, phosphatic sand rock is the highly leached residuum of the pellet phosphorite and is composed mainly of quartz, kaolinite, wavellite, and crandallite ( pseudowavellite2). It closely resembles the aluminum phosphate rock of the "leached zone" of the Bone Valley formation in the land-pebble phosphate district.

Investigations in Automated Activation Analysis

Description: Introduction: The Texas A. and M. Activation Analysis Research Laboratory has been studying the basic technology of activation analysis and its applications since 1958, under the spondorship of the Division of Isotopes Development, U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, and more recently, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The information presented in this report summarizes the progress which has been made in these efforts during the period from May 1, 1961, to October 31, 1962.
