Aerial Gamma-Ray and Magnetic Survey of the Delta Area--Utah: Final Report, Volume 1

Description: From abstract: Results of an ERDA-sponsored, high-sensitivity, airborne gamma-ray spectrometer and magnetometer survey of a portion of the Delta, Utah, NTMS, 1:250,000 scale quadrangle, carried out under Bendix Field Engineering Corporation Subcontract 76-019-L are discussed. The objective of the survey was to evaluate the Delta area as a uraniferous province, i.e., a region showing surface indications of a generally higher uranium content, and evidence of geochemical uranium enrichment over the other natural radioactive elements, where detailed exploration for uranium would likely be successful. The known presence of late stage Tertiary rhyolites and granites associated with fluorite and uranium occurrences and one productive uranium mine strongly suggested that the area is such a uraniferous province. A DC-3 aircraft equipped with a gamma-ray spectrometer using nine large-volume NaI detectors, two 400 channel analyzers, and ancillary geophysical and electronic equipment was employed for data collection.

Tables for determining reduction of energy and intensity of X-rays and gamma-rays at various scattering angles in small thickness of matter

Description: Report presenting tables for determining the total-absorption coefficients as well was the intensities and spectral distribution of gamma rays at any scattering angle. Both experimental and computed data on gamma rays of quantum energies up to 20 million electron volts for all elements which have significant data available are provided. The accuracy of results is obtained by the use of tables.

An Experimental Study of the Performance of a Cavity Type Ionization Chamber

Description: Abstract: "Comparisons between calorimetric and ionization chamber measurements of the power generated in graphite by absorption of energetic gamma rays have been carried out. The results serve as a calibration of the chamber. They also serve to test the consistency between the theoretical performance of this type of chamber and previously determined values for the factors which relate ionization in the chamber to energy absorption in the walls."

Design Studies on Cesium-137 as a Source for High Level Gamma Irradiators : Quarterly Progress Report no. 2 Covering the Period from September 1, 1959 to December 1, 1959

Description: "Further studies are reported on the analytical behavior and experimental testing of Cs/sup 137/ plaque irradiator designs. Low-level sources used for the initial experiments consisted of about 7 mc of Cs/sup 137/ aqueous solution in brass trays 20 by 20 by 1/2 in. high having wall thicknesses of 1/16 in. Calibration tests were made preliminary to radiation field mapping. (T.R.H.)."

Design Studies on Cesium-137 as a Source for High Level Gamma Irradiators : Quarterly Progress Report No. 3 Covering the Period from December 1, 1959 to March 1, 1960

Description: "Experiments were carried out on a Cs/sup 137/ plaque source of 40 x 40 x 1/2 inches. Measurements were made of dose distributions in water and of photon spectral distributions in paraffin. For 9-inch-thick water siab absorbers without air gaps, it was found from the preliminary experiments that the depth dose uniformity can be varied over the range 1.10 to 1.40. The absolute dose rates found were in general agreement with design predictions which indicate irradiator efficiencies in the region of 50% and dose rates in the region of 1 Megarad/hour for high-level indicators. (W.D.M.)."

Design Studies on Cesium-137 as a Source for High Level Gamma Irradiators : Quarterly Progress Report No. 1 Covering the Period from June 1 to August 31, 1959

Description: "A study was made of radiation physics problems involved in the design of high-level cesium-137 gamma sources. The radiation properties of cesium-137 sources are reviewed and design and dosimetry problems are discussed. The economics, efficiency, and dose distribution for material undergoing process irradiation were calculated. A comparison of cesium-137 with cobalt-60 gamma sources indicated that in the case of irradiators specifically designed for high efficiency of useful energy conversion, the performance of cesium-137 source material should be at least comparable to the performance of cobalt-60 source material. (C.H.)."

Analytical Method of Determining Transmission of Particles and Radiation Through Great Thickness of Matter

Description: "A matrix method of determining transmission, scattering, and absorption of radiation, such as gamma rays and neutrons, in large thickness of matter is presented. Experimental data as yet unavailable are required for complete utilization of the method. Material radioactivity whose intensity may be considered to be independent of time is also treated" (p. 1).

Thermal-neutron capture for A=26-35

Description: The prompt gamma-ray data of thermal- neutron captures fornuclear mass number A=26-35 had been evaluated and published in "ATOMICDATA AND NUCLEAR DATA TABLES, 26, 511 (1981)". Since that time themanyexperimental data of the thermal-neutron captures have been measuredand published. The update of the evaluated prompt gamma-ray data is verynecessary for use in PGAA of high-resolution analytical prompt gamma-rayspectroscopy. Besides, the evaluation is also very needed in theEvaluated Nuclear Structure Data File, ENSDF, because there are no promptgamma-ray data in ENSDF. The levels, prompt gamma-rays and decay schemesof thermal-neutron captures for nuclides (26Mg, 27Al, 28Si, 29Si, 30Si,31P, 32S, 33S, 34S, and 35Cl) with nuclear mass number A=26-35 have beenevaluated on the basis of all experimental data. The normalizationfactors, from which absolute prompt gamma-ray intensity can be obtained,and necessary comments are given in the text. The ENSDF format has beenadopted in this evaluation. The physical check (intensity balance andenergy balance) of evaluated thermal-neutron capture data has been done.The evaluated data have been put into Evaluated Nuclear Structure DataFile, ENSDF. This evaluation may be considered as an update of the promptgamma-ray from thermal-neutron capture data tables as published in"ATOMIC DATA AND NUCLEAR DATA TABLES, 26, 511 (1981)".

Balanced Ionization Chamber for Differential Measurements of Gamma Rays

Description: "The purpose of the work was to develop a method of measuring very small differences in the half lives of gamma ray emitting radioactive substances. The apparatus was then used to try to detect a difference in the half lives of Be7 metal and BeO. The results of the measurements on the two different chemical forms of beryllium will be given" (p. 1).

An Investigation for Gamma Rays Resulting from the Bombardment of As75 with 14 Mev Neutrons

Description: It is the purpose of this paper to set forth the method and results of studying the gamma rays resulting from the bombardment of As75 with approximately 14 Mev neutrons. The source of these neutrons was the H3(d,n)He4 reaction. The deuterons of 325 Kev energy were obtained from a Van de Graff electrostatic accelerator. A NaI scintillation spectrometer was used to determine the gamma-ray energies.
