In Situ Tracers Project Second Quarterly Progress Report: June-August 1959

Description: The purpose of this program is to summarize and evaluate the potential usefulness of in situ tracers, design and construct prototypes of large low-level soft beta counters for industrial application, especially of such isotopes as carbon-14 and tritium, and design and construct a prototype of a large low-level liquid scintillation detector for use vi the process gamma counting.

Transistors: Counters

Description: Abstract: "Two transistor plug-in decade counters are described, one of which operates over the SCS-7 temperature range. A transistor digital scanner with storage and parallel readout is described. It utilizes one of the plug-in decades. A simple design procedure for flip-flops is presented."

Response of a Low-Geometry Scintillation Counter to Fission and Other Products

Description: Abstract: The theoretical response of a low-geometry scintillation counter to any photon-emitting nuclide whose decay scheme is known is developed. It is used to compute the counting rate, as a function of time, of (1) individual and total fission products resulting from. 10^4 simultaneous slow-neutron fissions of U^235 and (2) several other nuclides for 10 initial atoms. The calculations extend from ~45 min to 301 days after fission.

Alpha Particle Detection and the A. C. Operated Detector "A" (Howler)

Description: Abstract: This discussion concerns the operation, construction, and servicing of an alpha rate meter of medium sensitivity (30,000 alpha particles full scale per minute) and good stability. The instrument is equipped with an oscillator which increases both in frequency and loudness as the alpha activity is increased. The oscillator circuit includes an anticipator which causes a change in frequency depending directly upon the rate of change of alpha activity. Maximum sensitivity is approximately 100 millivolts full scale. Grid current varies from 1 to 5 x 10^-14 amperes. A general discussion of time constants and accuracy is included. Tables of stopping power, ionization and alpha activity are appended.

A high resolution scale-of-four

Description: A high resolution scale-of-four has been developed to be used in conjunction with the nuclear particle detection devices in applications where the counting rate is unusually high. Specifically, it is intended to preceed the commercially available medium resolution scaling circuits and so decrease the resolving time of the counting system. The circuit will function reliably on continuously recurring pulses separated by less than 0.1 μ sec. It will resolve two pulses (occuring at a moderate repetition rate) which are spaced at 0.04 μ sec. A five-volt input signal is sufficient to actuate the device.

Searching for antiproton decay at the Fermilab Antiproton Accumulator

Description: This paper describes an experimental search for antiproton decay at the Fermilab Antiproton Accumulator. The E868 (APEX) experimental setup is described. The APEX data is expected to be sensitive to antiproton decay if the antiproton lifetimes is less than a few times 100,000 years.

A Transistorized Reactivity Measurement System

Description: An all-transistor system has been developed to be used in measuring the reactivity of the reactor in the Sandia Engineering Reactor Facility. In operation, the system triggers a pulsed neutron source (PNS) in the reactor and counts the resulting neutron flux, thus giving a measure of the time constant of the reactor. The counting is done in eleven time-sequenced counting channels. The reactor time constant is a measure of the reactor reactivity.
