ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF ORGANIC SOLIDS. I. KINETICS AND MECHANISMOF CONDUCTIVITY OF METAL-FREE PHTHALOCYANINE

Description: Techniques involving the use of high-intensity short-duration light pulses have been applied t o the study of the kinetics of photoconductivity in films of metal-free phthalocyanine. These experiments, in conjunction with measurements of steady-state photoconductivity, are consistent with the following scheme. The principal route for the formation of charge carriers is via the first excited singlet state, although the lowest triplet state can, t o some extent, contribute to charge - carrier pro… more

ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF ORGANIC SOLIDS. II: EFFECTS OF ADDEDELECTRON ACCEPTOR ON METAL-FREE PHTHALOCYANINE

Description: The addition of ortho-chloranil to the surface of films of metal-free phthalocyanine has been found (a) to increase the dark conductivity of such films by as much as 10{sup 7}, (b) to increase the steady-state photoconductivity by as much as 10{sup 5}, and (c) to result in the formation of unpaired electrons whose concentration decreases reversibly as a result of illumination. These systems exhibit a light-induced polarization, the phthalocyanine layer becoming more positive with respect t o th… more

"Granite" Exploration Hole, Area 15, Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada -- Interim Report: Part A, Structural, Petrographic, and Chemical Data

Description: From introduction: The "Granite" exploration hole was core drilled to determine the character of the igneous rocks from the surface to a depth of 1,200 feet and the degree of structural anisotropism of the rock within 200 feet of a point 950 feet below the surface. This report summarizes the data on the structure, chemistry, petrology and alteration of the rocks exposed at the surface in the immediate vicinity of the drill site and in the core.

Electron-Population Analysis and the Dipole Moment of the LiH ¹Σ⁺ Excited State / A.M. Karo

Description: Abstract: "Detailed consideration is given to some properties of the first excited electronic state. Following the analysis proposed bv Mulliken, SCF LCAO-MO coefficients are used to obtain qualitative information about the electron distributions. Comparison is made with earlier work with respect to the description of the excited-state dipole moment, the effective electric moment between the ground and excited states is also calculated. From this, the oscillator strength for the first allowed t… more

CGI-844: 100-K coolant back-up system scope requirements

Description: Several decisions regarding basic project philosophy must be made in order to proceed with scope design and the preparation of equipment procurement specifcations. The purpose of this document is to present as much pertinent data as possible to allow the project representatives to become familiar with the problems involved. A meeting of Representatives is planned for the near future after receipt of project authorization to discuss the scope of this project and its relationship to CG-775. Emerg… more

Production Test IP-247-A-8-FP, irradiation of 1.47% enriched self-supported I&E fuel elements in ribless process tubes

Description: The objective of the test detailed in this report is to irradiate self-supported fuel elements under conditions of severity comparable in these expected for future loadings of this geometry, to attempt to determine the resistance to corrosion of cooled cladding, the effect of supports on cladding corrosion and coolant flow patterns, and the relative resistance to ``hot-spot`` type attack and rupture of ``projection`` fuel elements and rib supported elements. This test will authorize irradiation… more

Hydrologic and Tracer Studies in Mohawk River at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory

Description: Preface: In 1948, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Atomic Energy Commission, initiated a study of the hydraulics and hydrology of Mohawk River in the vicinity of the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory (KAPL) near Schenectady, N.Y. The purpose of this study was to determine the probable effects of release of low concentrations of radioactive wastes from the Laboratory to Mohawk River.

105-N charge-discharge rates

Description: Figures have and can be generated that indicate a higher charge-discharge rate if required before 105-N will be comparable with existing reactors. Also, these figures show an apparent operating cost incentive to increase the charge-discharge rates proposed for 105-N. Although these figures may be true by themselves, other figures developed from the same information and stated on a basis that affords a true comparison, show that the proposed rates for 105-N are compatible with those in existing … more

Xenon calculations for I and E fuel element

Description: This document describes in detail the calculations that are basic to the xenon problem. While much of this work appears elsewhere, herein an attempt has been made to bring it together and make it as understandable as possible. The principle purpose of this document is to calculate the equilibrium xenon poisoning for the I and E geometry fuel element and compare the results to the equilibrium xenon poisoning for the solid geometry fuel element. Further objectives are to provide an understandable… more

Radioactive particles in the 234-5 Building ventilation exhaust

Description: The 234-5 Building ventilation exhaust is continuously sampled for the purpose of estimating the amount of radioactive (alpha emitting) material discharged to the atmosphere. Although a record is kept of the gross amount of radioactive material discharged, few data are available concerning the size and kind of active particles in the exhaust air. Knowledge of the particle size permits: (1) an estimate of the validity of samples drawn through the sampling system, (2) a better knowledge of what t… more

The Palmolive cycle at Hanford

Description: The Palmolive program is directed toward the recovery of neptunium-237 and production of plutonium-238. The neptunium is recovered during the chemical processing of irradiated uranium and is purified and fabricated into target elements. The target elements are irradiated to produce plutonium-238 by neutron capture of neptunium-237 and are processed to provide plutonium for shipment to the final customer and neptunium for recycle within the system. This report summarizes a preliminary engineerin… more

Specifications for Critical Mass Control Redox Plant - E-metal

Description: The specifications given in this document cover the processing of E-Metal. E-Metal is defined as natural uranium which has been enriched with U-235 to a concentration of 0.95 percent. The higher U-235 content makes the E-Metal more reactive than either natural or irradiated natural uranium. This difference in reactivity places a definite limit on the amount of massive metal that can be charged to the present Redox dissolvers. Once the slugs have been dissolved, the processing of E-Metal is esse… more

Operational physics comments on fuel pile operational charge-discharge

Description: This document has been written in part to answer questions concerning the feasibility and advisability of ``quickie`` discharge of ruptures at C Reactor. Justification of full pile operational charge-discharge (OC-D) is based in part on outage savings resulting from improved, rupture removal. Since a portion of the rupture removals might be accomplished within the scram recovery time (quickie) it is necessary to consider recovery time as a function of anticipated future power levels.
