Description: This ninth edition of the AEC radioisotope customer list has been prepared, as previously, at the request of the Commission's Division of Applied Technology (formerly the Division of Isotope Development. It is a compilation of radioisotope sales during FY 1972 by Commission facilities at Argonne National Laboratory, Atlantic Richfield Hanford Company, Battelle-Pacific Northwest Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, United Nuclear Inc., Idaho Nuclear Corporation, Hanford Engineering Development Laboratory, Mound Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Richland Operations Office, and Savannah River Plant. The information is divided into four sections. The first is an alphabetical list of domestic and foreign customers. Included are the isotopes purchased by each customer and the laboratory supplying each cross-referenced to customer numbers and again divided into the domestic and foreign categories. The third section is an alphabetical list of states and countries, also cross-referenced to customer numbers, indicating geographical concentrations of isotope users. The final section is a comprehensive table providing an alphabetical listing of the isotopes and a breakdown of shipments, quantities, and dollars for each isotope under the domestic, foreign, and project(AEC facilities) categories as well as the total figures for each isotopes. (auth) O H0229641 Translated from Zh. Eksp. Teor. Fiz., Pis'ma Red.; 18: No. 9, The presently existing z-pinch modifications are compared. A proposed model whereby the thermal fraction of the neutron yield is produced (heating by an electron beam) is used to explain the increase of the neutron yield and of its thermal fraction with decreasing length of collective deceleration of the beam in the z-pinch. An experimental setup is proposed for increasing the neutron yield, based on a deuterated target at the chamber anode, preheated with a powerful laser prior to development of the relativistic electron beam in the z-pinch.
