Analysis of Spurious Modes in Magnet Power Supply

Description: "The resonant frequencies of the magnet power supply are investigated. It is found that there are eleven resonant modes in addition to the desired mode of operation with six additional resonant frequencies. From measurements of the choke model, it appears that the frequencies of some of the spurious modes may lie in the same range as the desired mode of operation."

The Validity of the Statistical Theory of Pressure Broadening

Description: The statistical theory of pressure broadening is developed for any interaction law in which the potential energy is inversely proportional to some power of the distance between the molecules, including cases in which the forces change sign. This note is intended to prove two propositions: A. When a spectral line is broadened by single impacts of perturbing molecules and the half-width of the line is delta infinity, the statistical theory of broadening is applicable provided delta infinity .

Radiation Level in the Stator Region of the HRT Fuel Circulation Pump

Description: The gamma dose rate in the motor region of the HRT fuel circulation pump was measured with the pump scroll full of radioactive solution. Extrapolation of the data to the solution activity expected in the pump under normal operation gives a dose rate well below that which would result in excessive gas production in the stator can within the life of the pump. The above dose rate does not include the effects of fast neutrons from the fuel solution or of the general cell radiation level in the vici… more

Removal of Chloride From Congo Precipitates

Description: Uranium precipitates obtained from Congo leach liquors by an ion exchange process contained more than 0.1 percent chloride. Attempts were made to reduce the chloride content of typical precipitates by calcination of dried precipitate, releaching of dried precipitate with water, and washing of wet precipitate with water. Washing of wet precipitate with an aqueous solution of 0.25 percent Na2SO4, to prevent peptization, provided a simple solution to the problem.
