MOUND LABORATORY PROGRESS REPORT FOR JUNE 1963

Description: 3 8 ; 9 4 5 7 5 C 9 E ; < : 7over a 1456-day period. The half life was calculated to be 12.355 plus or minus 0.0l0 years, based on measurements in three calorimeters. The yields of /sup 208/Po and /sup 209/Po from the irradiation of multicurie quantities of /sup 210/Po were calculated. Production of small quantities of /sup 208/Po and /sup 209/Po is possible by the (n,xn) reaction; however, large quantities of /sup 210/Po would be present in the /sup 208/Po--/sup 209/Po sample. On the basis of … more

Reduction of Plutonium (VI) to Plutonium(III) and (IV) by Sodium Nitrite

Description: The use of anion exchange for final Pu purification in the Redox facility requires the adjustment of Pa(VI) to Pu(IV). Two methods of reduction were investigated: ferrous sulfamate and nitrite. The ferrous sulfamate method was adopted. Data on reduction of Pu(VI) to Pu(IV) and Pu(III) by nitrite are presented. The reduction by nitrite was found to be dependent on nitrite concentration, temperature, acidity, ferric ion concentration, and time, and it is possible to obtain &gt;90% reduction to Pu… more

A GENERALIZED SHIELDING STUDY FOR NUCLEAR ELECTRIC SPACE POWER PLANTS

Description: The weights and thicknesses of two-layer W-- LiH shadow shields were calculated for SNAP-2, -8, and (assumed) -50 reactors. The shields are shaped as spherical sectors with haif-angles up to 30 deg and are sized so that no part of the reactor is visible within the volume subtended by the shield. Weights and thicknesses are presented for both manned and unnaanned vehicles over a wide range of reactor thermal powers, operating durations, reactorpayload separation distances, and allowable radiatio… more

Laboratory development of a process for recovering uranium from Rover fuel by combustion, liquid-phase chlorination with hexachloropropene, and aqueous extraction

Description: Declassified 24 Sep 1973. The purpose of this work was to develop a process for recovering the uranium from spent Rover fuels. Only one reactor is used, and the process involves a 4-hr combustion of the fuel in oxygen at about 800 deg C, a 4-hr chlorination of the U/sub 3/O/sub 8/-Nb/ sub 2/O/sub 5/ ash in refluxing hexachloropropene at 180 deg C, dissolution-extraction of the UCl/sub 4/ and NbCl/sub 5/ products at room temperature by dilute nitric acid, and extraction of the uranium from the r… more

ANNEALING OF GAMMA RAY INDUCED CHANGES IN ANTIMONY DOPED GERMANIUM

Description: An investigatiori of the annealing of the radioinduced carrier concentration change in Sb-doped Ge in the range 370 to 455 l K was made. The irradiations were conducted at liquid nitrogen temperature using Co/ sup 60/ gamma irradiation. A model that explains the observed behavior is presented. On the basis of the model, the observed annealing consists of vacancy diffusion simultaneously to impurity sites and annihilation centers. Analysis of the activation energy for the annealing process yield… more

Summary of BeO Development Work for the Experimental Beryllium Oxide Reactor Program

Description: The Experimental Beryllium Oxide Reactor is described. The configurations and properties of BeO blocks are discussed. Various BeO shapes were fabricated and tested. BeO specimens of selected compositions and densities were irradiated. Dimensional changes due to radiation were in the range below 1.4% as determined from micrometer measurements. Some of the specimens in the highest exposure region of the capsule exhibited radial fractures. (M.C.G.)
