Heat Transfer Fluids for Fuel Element Cans

Description: The maximum temperature in the interior of the fuel element could be greatly reduced by incorporating a liquid between the fuel element and the outer can to increase-heat transfer rates. It is of interest to consider what liquids would be chemically compatible with graphite and the actinide carbides. Elements which melt below 1100 and boil above 1400 deg C that form no stable solid carbides, include Cu, Ga, TI, Ge, Sn, Pb, Sb, Bi, and compounds include GeP, GeS, GaP, Ga/sub 2/S, GaTe, GaAs, SnT… more

Fate of Fission Product Gases in the Coolant Stream

Description: The quantity and characteristics of fission products in coolant gases due to leaking fuel elements are discussed. It is concluded that the rare gases, the alkali metals, the halides, and Sb may act as permanent gases to a considerable extent. The other fission products are expected to condense out completely on walls or as dust consisting of metals, carbides, and oxides.

An error Analysis of R-C Timers

Description: The results of this paper show that a variation is sensing voltage produces an error in timing which increases logarithmically with time interval. Also, variation in supply voltage produces the same type of errors, but the errors are decreased by the ratio of the sensing to supply voltage. An interesting conclusion from this analysis is that if the ratio of supply to sensing voltages is maintained constant, no change in timing will result.

Behavior of Transistors in a Magnetic Field

Description: Experiments are described which show that magnetic fields can exert a controlling influence on the operating characteristics of point contact transistors. The effect is especially evident when the transistor is operated in its negative resistance region. The frequency of an oscillator can be varied, or a switch made to trigger by applying a magnetic field to the transistor. Some applications of the principle are suggested; many more are evident.

Vapor Traps for Handling Liquid Sodium

Description: An active program is a present underway to develop equipment to handle liquid metals. Among the metals being studied are sodium and sodium--potassium alloy (the latter commonly referred to as NaK). In many of the systems being studied this liquid metal is pressurized by inert gas in the lines. At times it is necessary to bleed off some of this gas from the system. Although the gas is allowed to escape at a temperature at which the vapor pressure of sodium is extremely small, it has been found t… more

Photocathode and Reflector Effects n Relative Pulse Height Measurements

Description: The first highly productive phase in the development of organic scintillation detectors found physicists exploring the excitation and light emission properties of easily available organic chemicals. The second phase of this work which is now in progress can be characterized by the active participation of organic chemists in synthesizing new compounds for sturdy and setting standards of purity leading to the recognition by some chemical manufactures of a "scintillation grade".

A Fast Neutron Time of Flight System for Use With Cyclotrons

Description: "Time of flight spectrometers for the study of neutrons emitted in charged particle reactions have become important in recent years, following the development of suitable photomultiplier tubes and electronic circuits for nanosecond (ns) timing measurements. The principle of operation is simple. The particles exciting the nuclear reactions in which the neutrons are produced fall on the target in bunches of the order of a nanosecond in width. the arrival of product neutrons at a organic scintil… more

A Simplified Description of Spherical and Cylindrical Blast Waves

Description: "Investigations into the behavior of the gas flow behind spherical or cylindrical blasts have shown that secondary shocks arise within the original detonation gases. The secondary shock, at first weak, is carried outward with the expanding gases. Subsequently it strengthens and bends back toward the origin, arriving there with high intensity. By using some recently developed techniques in shock dynamics a theory is developed by which the motion of the main shock wave, as well as the formatio… more

Measurement of the Wolfenstein Parameter R at 210 Mev.

Description: "Recent theoretical advances in describing the nucleon-nucleon interaction (particularly in the T=1 state) have emphasized the importance of obtaining an unambiguous experimental determination of the scattering matrix so that the nuclear phase shifts and details of the nuclear potential may be revealed. It is possible to select five experiments, the results of which, in principle at least, determine the scattering matrix and phase shifts uniquely at one energy. Two of these experiments, the cr… more

Precise Measurements of the Mean Lives of µ+ and µ- Mesons in Carbon

Description: "The lifetimes of approximately 6 million positive mesons have been measured using a crystal controlled oscillator as a clock. The resulting decay curve was analyzed on the IBM 650 digital computer and gave a mean life of 2,211 plus or minus 0.003 µsec. The mean life of negative mu mesons in carbon was also measured and found to be 2,043 plus or minus 0.003 µsec. The resulting nuclear capture rate is (0.373 plus or minus 0.011)x10 to the 5th/sec, assuming that the decay rate of a negative mu m… more

A Manual of Experiments in Reactor Physics

Description: Nuclear processes are random in character, and, accordingly, are amenable to statistical treatment. In 1905, shortly after the discover of natural radioactivity, E. Von Schweldler showed that the analytical description of the decay distribution of radioactive substances followed from probability considerations regardless of the mechanism involved in the process of atomic disintegration.
