Monsanto Chemical Company, Unit 3 abstracts of progress reports, August 16--31, 1945: Summary of work to date on volatile neutron source

Description: It was proposed to prepare a volatile polonium compound which could be used alone or with another gaseous compound as a neutron source. The objective was to obtain a neutron source which would give off few neutrons in the expanded state, but when condensed would act substantially as a thick target and emit perhaps ten times as many neutrons. Originally, polonium hexafluoride was suggested; with such compound the fluorine atoms would constitute the target. the predicted boiling point of polonium hexafluoride is about -40 {degrees}C. There was reason to believe, however, that lower relatively non-volatile fluorides would be formed rather than the hexafluoride. Polonium alkyls were therefore proposed as alternatives. The predicted boiling point of Po(CH{sub 3}){sub 2} is about 110 {degrees}C. This compound in itself would probably not be suitable as a target material but it could be mixed with other gases such as carbon tetrafluoride, boron trifluoride, etc., as targets. As a longer range possibility, Po(CF{sub 3}){sub 2} was also suggested. This compound would act as its own target and would moreover have the same F/Po ratio as PoF{sub 6}; its boiling point could be expected to be 30{degrees} - 60 {degrees} lower than that of polonium dimethyl. Calculations were made with showed that the desired effect could be obtained either with Po F{sub 6} or with a mixture of Po(CH{sub 3}){sub 2} with a suitable target gas. Investigation of the preparation of these two compounds was therefore undertaken, and later some preliminary attempts to prepare polonium carbonyl were made.

Two-dimensional wind-tunnel investigation of a 6-percent-thick symmetrical circular-arc airfoil section with leading-edge and trailing-edge high-lift devices deflected in combination

Description: Report presenting a two-dimensional wind-tunnel investigation of a 6-percent-thick symmetrical circular-arc airfoil with leading-edge and trailing-edge high-lift devices. The purpose of the investigation was to determine the effects on maximum section lift coefficient of different leading-edge slats and drooped-nose flaps when used in combination with a plain trailing-edge flap. Results regarding slat configuration, drooped-nose-flap configurations, and a comparison of slat and drooped-nose-flap configurations are provided.

CALIFORNIUM ISOTOPES FROM BOMBARDMENT OF URANIUM WITH CARBONIONS

Description: The recent production and identification of isotopes of elements with atomic numbers up to six higher than the target element through bombardment with hexapositive 120-Mev carbon ions made it seem worthwhile to apply this technique to the transuranium region. Accordingly, small pieces of natural uranium metal (about 0.5 mil thick and 205 cm by 0.6 cm area) were irradiated in the internal carbon ion beam in the Berkeley 60-inch cyclotron. Following the irradiations, the uranium was dissolved in dilute hydrochloric acid containing hydrogen peroxide and a transplutonium fraction was isolated through the use of lanthanum fluoride, and lanthanum hydroxide precipitation steps followed by the ion exchange adsorption column procedure in which concentrated hydrochloric acid is used to separate the tripositive actinide elements from the rare earth elements. The transplutonium fractions in hydrochloric acid were evaporated as weightless films on platinum plates which were placed in the ionization chamber of the 48 channel pulse analyzer apparatus in order to measure the yield and energies of any alpha-particles which might be present. In the best experiment at about one hour after the end of the 90-minute bombardment, some 50 disintegrations per minute of the distinctive 7.1-Mev alpha-particles of Cf{sup 244} were observed to be present and to decay with the 45-minute half-life. The Cf{sup 244} was presumably formed by the reaction U{sup 238}(C{sup 12},6n). After the decay of the alpha-particles due to Cf{sup 244}, about five disintegrations per minute of alpha-particles with 6.8-Mev energy was observed and this alpha-radioactivity decayed with a half-life of about 35 hours. A consideration of the systematics of alpha-radioactivity leads us to the view that this activity is due to the new isotope Cf{sup 246} formed by the reaction U{sup 238}(C{sup 12},4n) . The measured half-life agrees with the expected alpha half-life for the observed energy for ...

PHYSICS DIV. QUARTERLY REPORT, MAY, JUNE, JULY, 1950

Description: The X-ray Spectrum Produced by 322 Mev Electrons Striking a Platinum Target. The differential energy spectrum of the photons produced by 322 Mev electrons striking a 20 mil platinum target was measured by observing the energy of 3467 pairs produced in a one mil thick lead foil in a Wilson cloud chamber in a magnetic field of 10,000 gauss. The spectrum is found to agree with that predicted by the Bethe-Heitler bremsstrahlung theory using a Thomas-Fermi model with suitable corrections for the thickness of the target. The energy of the 322 Mev electrons was determined by the spectrum of the photons observed in this experiment. Apparatus used and the experimental data and results obtained are reported fully in UCRL-660.
