Effect of Quadrupole Lenses

Description: "The effect of correcting quadrupole lenses on the betatron oscillation characteristics of an AG synchrotron was studied, and general formulas are given for the fractional changes of the amplitude and phase functions. Calculations performed for different setups of different numbers of lenses for the CEA synchrotron structure point out that one may correct for sizable errors in the n- value by means of 8 pairs of quadrupole lenses in two consecutive straight sections with the focusing lens betwe… more

Diffusion in a Temperature Gradient

Description: To summarize one finds that for diffusion in a temperature gradient by a vacancy mechanism one must have E(M) < E(F). No such restrictions occur for interstitial diffusion. The spatial vacancy distribution is very nearly the equilibrium distribution if dislocations are present. If no dislocations are present then one could obtain E(M) by measurement of the spatial distribution.

The Effect of Crystallite Size on the Bulk Density and Strength Properties of Uranium Dioxide Specimens

Description: Fused uranium dioxide was separated into fractions of varying particle size by air separation. Specimens of the nominal size of 1/8 by 1/4 by 1½ in. were formed by hydrostatic pressing, firing, and lapping. Specimens prepared from the 0 to 5 μ fraction were the strongest and most dense. The room-temperature density was about 92% of theoretical and the room-temperature flexural strength was about 12,000 1b. per sq. in. When tested at 1000°C., the strength was about 18,000 1b. per sq. in. The fle… more

Reaction of Graphic with Sodium

Description: Most of the publications in the open literature available to us agree that sodium does not readily react with graphite, though potassium, rubidium, and cesium readily enter between the planes of the graphite lattice. In view of the conflicting evidence available, it seems inadvisable without very extensive further study to consider the use of graphite in direct contact with liquid sodium, except under very mild conditions of temperature and irradiation, and then only with very pure sodium and c… more

Detection of Airborne Beryllium Dust : Monthly Report Covering the Period from May1 to June 1, 1955

Description: During this period a prototype gamma ray detection system was assembled and data was obtained on samples of beryllium salts on filter paper under a variety of conditions. Ordinarily either a scaler-register combination or the CRM-recorder combination would be sufficient for obtaining data. Both units have been used here in order to utilize the particular advantages of each system. The scaler-register unit was employed for obtaining precise data over short intervals while the CRM-recorder was us… more

Local Fields With Terminating Expansions (x)

Description: "The quantum theory problem of constructing explicitly a local Lorentz invariant model field theory which has an asymptotic particle interpretation and gives rise to an S matrix different from unity is discussed. It is proved that if a local covariant field H(x) has a complete current, the S matrix associated with this field is identically equal to unity. Results show that in order to get an interaction, the current is not allowed to have a terminating expansion in terms of a free field. The ab… more

Investigations of Radioactive Fuel-Bearing Glasses

Description: "A series of high urania-content glasses were fiberized and examined for high-temperature strength properties. One glass, RX360 containing 60% U/sub 3/O/ sub 8/ by weight, had better high-temperature tensile properties than any glass previously reported. It was observed that many of the glasses studied separated into immiscible phases and that the fiberizable glass phase had lower U/sub 3/O/ sub 8/ content than the base compositions. A physical analysis of crystal structures of the devitrificat… more

Diffusion of Iron, Cobalt, and Nickel in Gold, Report No. 5

Description: "The diffusivities of Fe, Co, and Al in otherwise pure Au were determined by a residual activity technique. It was found that the frequency factors and activation energies of the transition elements into Au are normal relative to the values for Au self-diffusion, and suggest that lattice diffusion is operative, in contrast to the corresponding situation for the diffusion of these elements in Al. This difference in behavior is explained in terms of the marked difference in solid solubilities in … more

Diffusion in Cobalt-Nickel Alloys, Report No. 4

Description: The self-diffusivities of Co60 and Ni63 in cobalt--nickel solid solutions exhibit a greater activation energy below the Curie temperature (T/sub c/) than above. Values of DELTA Q = Q (ferromagnetic) -- Q (paramagnetic) are approximately equal to RT/sub c/. This observation is interpreted to indicate that the increment in activation energy arises from an increase in the formation energy of a vacancy in the ferromagnetic lattice, with the additional binding energy arising from the interaction of … more
