The anatomy of plasmons

Description: From abstract: "Plamons (plasma-magnetic entities) are toroidal "packages" of plasma wrapped up in their own magnetic field. Experimental evidence for the existence of plasmons is adduced and theoretical considerations concerning their various types and their stability are discussed."

Deep underground test shots

Description: From abstract: "The purpose of this note is to consider the feasibility of conducting kiloton-weapons tests in underground holes sufficiently deep so that the explosion will be effectively contained. Such a shot would have the advantage that it could be detonated independently of weather conditions, and thus would allow greater freedom in the test program."

Preliminary Studies on Electrical Propulsion Systems for Space Travel

Description: Report discussing low and high acceleration flight mechanics for interplanetary missions, as well as the energy limitation for electric propulsion systems powered by a nuclear energy source. From abstract: "An optimization procedure for low acceleration systems is given which leads to a simple relationship between mission requirements, payload fraction, power plant specific power, and exhaust velocity."

Preparation and Stability of Cobalt Trifluoride

Description: Report discussing the preparation, stability, and recommended storage of cobalt trifluoride. "Cobalt trifluoride prepared by the action of fluorine upon anhydrous cobalt dichloride remains stable when kept in sealed glass tubes but on exposure to air it absorbs water and its use in the conversion of T3O8 to TF6 cannot be relied upon..."

Preparation of UCl₄ With Hexachloropropylene and Other Chlorinated Organic Compounds

Description: Abstract: "A summary of the information contained in several reports relative to the use of hexachloropropylene for the preparation of UCl4. Data relative to the performance of charge material so prepared and to pilot plants are omitted."

Present Status of Polonium Tolerance Estimations

Description: From abstract: "This report contains a summary of biological information on distribution, excretion, and toxicity of polonium; a comparison of results obtained when maximum permissible exposure rates for man are calculated from available data by different methods; and a critical evaluation of the present status of Po tolerance estimates."

The Preservation of Fluorescence Standards

Description: Report discussing the practice of using methyl methacrylate as a coating for platinium dishes in fluorescence method of uranium analysis. The experimental procedure described in this report to evaluate this practice indicates that the sample would be sufficiently protected from contamination and would not need to be stored in a desiccator.

The Reaction of Ferric Chloride With Uranium Tetrachloride

Description: Abstract: Solid ferric chloride reacts with solid uranium tetrachloride to form a complex iron-uranium chloride compound at approximately 263°C. The vapor pressure of this compound is nearer to that of uranium tetrachloride than to the vapor pressure of ferric chloride.

The Reaction of Hexachloropropylene With Metallic Oxides

Description: Abstract: Twenty-two metallic oxides were refluxed with hexachloropropylene. The anhydrous chlorides or other products formed are described for each oxide. The reactions were particularly vigorous with higher valent oxides of the fifth and sixth group elements.

Recovery of Tuballoy From Solutions Containing Fluoride Ion

Description: "Another extraction method is described herein for the quantitative recovery of tuballoy from solutions containing high concentrations of fluoride ion. The method consists of the addition of aluminum nitrate to the solution in order to complex the fluoride ion, followed by saturation with calcium nitrate and extraction of the tuballoy with dibutyl carbitol.

Recovery of Tuballoy (Uranium) From Tantalum

Description: Report discussing methods for the "separation of tantalum and tuballoy from used tantalum K's. These methods are: hydrofluorination, fluorination, hydrochlorination and dissolution in hydrofluoric acid -- nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid -- hydrochloric acid mixture, and hydrofluoric acid alone."

Recovery of Uranium From Beta Salvage Residues by Vapor Phase Chlorination With CCl₄

Description: Abstract: A simple process to recover the bulk of the uranium from ignited beta salvage residues was sought. In preliminary experiments a vapor phase chlorination with CCl₄ for about four hours followed by water and nitric acid leaching was found adequate. Recoveries are estimated at 60 to 90% of the total uranium content.
