Airborne Radioactivity Survey of Part of the Navajo Indian Reservation of Utah and Arizona

Description: From introduction: The purpose of an airborne radioactivity survey is to locate ground areas of higher than normal radioactivity which might lead to discovery of uranium mineralization. For this type of survey, gamma-ray detection equipment employing either a geiger counter or a scintillation counter can be mounted in a fixed wing aircraft or a helicopter.

Analysis of Carbon Monoxide-Nitrogen Mixtures by High Resolution Mass Spectrometry

Description: From abstract: "A single focusing mass spectrometer has been converted into a double focusing instrument. Relatively high resolution is obtained by decreasing the slit widths and minimizing the ion-optic aberrations. A relatively low ion accelerating voltage (2000 volts) is utilized compared to those normally used for high resolution work. The entire construction was performed at these laboratories. Essentially all of the original equipment was reused in the double focusing system. Although the original source slit was decreased from 10 to 0.4 mils and the source α value was decreased from 0.04 to 0.008 radians, sufficient sensitivity is obtained for quantitative gas analysis with the ordinary electrometer tube amplifiers utilizing 4 x 10[^]10 ohms input grid resistors and 100 per cent inverse feedback. Carbon monoxide-nitrogen mixtures were analyzed quantitatively. The results indicate that direct quantitative analysis can be obtained on mixtures ranging from 99 per cent to 10 per cent carbon monoxide in nitrogen. Analysis of lower percentages may be made possible through indirect reading of the peak should it be necessary. It appears that the instrument should be adaptable to research problems concerning these two gases. The immediate problem posed is the analysis of oxygen and nitrogen in metals. Other applications may be possible such as analysis of metastable fragment ions of hydrocarbons or identification of doublet peaks requiring high resolution."
