Low Frequency Amplifier IH-130-1

Description: A tranistorized d.c. coupled amplifier having very good gain stability, as well as very low drift of the output d.c. level, has been designed. Low frequency input signals with an amplitude of .04 to 2 volts peak-to-peak, approximately, coming from a low impedance source (voice soil of a speaker system) are amplified to an approximate peak-to-peak amplitude of 4 volts. The output is intended to drive a load of the order of 100 kohm.

Internal Bunching in the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS)

Description: Four methods of rebunching protons within Brookhaven's AGS are discussed. The first method involving switching off the old r-f and switching on the new r-f simultaneously with the new r-f increasing adiabatically seems impractical. Two other methods utilize gradual removal of the old r-f voltage and introduction of the new r-f voltage, or the reverse. Removal of the old r-f voltage followed by introduction of the new seems to give the best results. Several phase diagrams are included. (D.C.W.)

Non-Linear Bunch Motion at Transition

Description: A summary of the dynamic behavior of the proton bunches in the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) has been given previously. In these reports, the usual linearization of the differential equations involved has been made and the theory was restricted to well bunched beams. The linearized approach is no longer valid at transition where the actual phase angle of the bunch can differ appreciably for a short time from the stable phase angle Φ₀. In this report the non-linearity of the differential equations for phase oscillations will no longer be neglected. At transition the beam is slow enough so that the electronics of the bootstrap system can be considered as being ideal and the radius servo loop can be characterized by one time constant. Under these assumptions the analysis can be carried out in a two-dimensional phase plane. The essential new result will be the short existence of a stable equilibrium point for the bunch motion not coinciding with Φ₀. The results here derived have been tested experimentally and at least a qualitative agreement was found. However, the conclusions are no more valid if debunching takes place since we have still neglected the finite bunch width.

Servo System for Magnetic Controlled Constant Intensity Flat Top Beam Spill-Out

Description: A uniform intensity flat top spill-out cannot be obtained by manual control for two reasons: 1. The horizontal density of the internal beam of the Cosmotron is far from uniform. As a result, a manually controlled linear motion of the internal beam into a target will result in a non-uniform spill-out intensity. 2. Stability requirements of the Cosmotron magnet voltage are not easily met without feedback because of inherent component stability. The proposed servo system will sense the external beam intensity, and correct the magnet voltage to keep this intensity constant. This servo must operate through the transfer function of the main ignitron system and the flat top filter. Both of those transfer functions impose special problems.

Chemistry of Anhydrous Systems Containing Hydrogen Fluoride and Nitrogen Oxides

Description: Nitrosyl and fluoride ions are formed in liquid anhydrous hydrogen fluoride when nitric oxide, nitrogen sesquioxide, nitrogen tetroxide, or nitrosyl fluoride, are dissolved. Vapor infrared analysis was used to study the solution composition and gaseous reaction products. These solutions react with metallic uranium, plutonium, zirconium, iron, and aluminum, as well as ceramic uranium oxide and uranium carbide, forming soluble nitrosyl metal fluoride complexes and liberating nitric oxide. The uranium compound identified as nitrosylium hexafluorouranate, NOUF₆, was made volatile by passing nitrosyl fluoride gas over the dry salt at 500 deg C.

Effects of Insulin of Hepatic Glucose Metabolism and Glucose Utilization by Tissues

Description: The mechanism whereby insulin lowers the blood glucose concentration is currently under extensive investigation. Despite the general agreement that the addition of insulin increases glucose uptake by various isolated tissues, the question has been raised whether administered insulin produces its blood sugar lowering effect in vivo primarily in increasing glucose uptake. Furthermore, it has been suggested that physiologically-released insulin may not exert the same effects as are produced by administered insulin. Attention has also been focused on whether insulin (exogenous or endogenous) exerts its action mainly or entirely on the liver and to what extent insulin influences glucose uptake and glucose production by the liver. The studies to be reported are a continuation of earlier work and are concerned with the effects of insulin, both exogenous and endogenous, on glucose utilization by the tissues and glucose production by the liver under various dietary condition in the unanethetized, intact dog, using C¹⁴ glucose.

The Application of Inert Fluidized Beds to the Volatility Reprocessing of Reactor Fuels

Description: In the reprocessing of spent solid fuels from nuclear reactors by direct volatilization, one of the major problems is the removal of heat from the highly exothermic gas-solid reactions. The use of fluidized beds of inert granular material as heat transfer media to control these exothermic reactions forms the basis of one approach to volatile reprocessing which is under development at BNL The engineering scale work carried out under this development program is discussed.

A Solution of the Distributional Error Problem in Cytophotometry

Description: Use of that portion of the characteristic curve of photographic film in which transmission is linear with log exposure eliminates the distributional error and thus makes possible the assessment of total mass of an inhomogeneously distributed cell consistent without scanning or measuring the cell's projected area. Measurement consists of obtaining the difference in output of a photocell receiving the total light transmitted by a photomicrograph of the cell, and a photomicrograph of the microscope field illumination against which the cell was photographed. A method of making such measurements is given, and its basis is described.

The Effect of Temperature on the Yield Strength of the Polycrystalline Hexagonal Ag-Al Intermetallic Phase

Description: The effect of temperature on the yield strength of the polycrystalline hexagonal Ag-Al intermetallic phase was investigated over the temperature range 77 to 775 K. It was found that the curve for yield stress vs temperature for both polycrystalline Ag-33 at .% Al specimens that were heavily cold worked prior to deformation and those that were recrystallized prior to deformation was parallel to that for prismatic slip in single crystals.

Hydromagnetic Ionizing Fronts

Description: One of the techniques by which highly ionized plasmas can be generated in the laboratory makes use of strong, electromagnetically driven shock waves propagating into a cold gas. In this paper the phenomenon is analyzed as a one-dimensional single-fluid hydromagnetic problem, neglecting dissipation behind the wave. We hypothesize that the rarefaction wave remains attached to the front. In the limit of essentially complete ionization behind the front the problem can be solved analytically as long as the transverse magnetic field there remains small compared with the longitudinal field.

The Radiolysis Of Liquid Isobutane With Pulsed Electrons

Description: Of the saturated hydrocarbons, isobutane represents the simplest case where specificity in radiolytic behavior owing to structural configuration should be apparent. The hydrogen bonded to the tertiary carbon atoms should, on the basis of bond strengths alone, be expected to be more reactive than other hydrogen atoms in the molecule. In order to investigate such specificity, liquid isobutane has been irradiated at 20' and an attempt made to identify and measure all products through the C8 (C<sub>8) hydrocarbons.

A Recoil Study Of The Reaction C12(p,pn)C11 [formula]

Description: Recoil ranges of C11 from the reaction C12(p,pn)C11 are presented for incident proton energies from 0.25 to 6.2 Gev. From these data it is concluded that a neutron evaporation mechanism cannot be the major mechanism. The result for incident energies of 3 and 6.2 Gev are consistent with a fast reaction consisting of a single inelastic nucleon-nucleon collision. Assuming this mechanism, an average kinetic energy of 19 Mev can be deduced for the struck neutron (before the collision) in the C12 nucleus.

A Theoretical Consideration Of Asymmetric Heat Flow At The Interface Of The Dissimilar Metals

Description: Several investigators have found that the resistance to heat transfer at certain metal-metal interfaces is dependent upon the direction of heat flow across these interfaces. This paper shows that such a phenomenon can be explained by application of the theory of heat conduction in the solid state.

Sheet Metal Can Furnace

Description: A need for a small vertical cylinder-type furnace arises frequently in the Chemistry Department at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory (LRL). Adequate heat is the major requirement; close control or calibration is not usually necessary. A heating unit of this type can either be used for quickly concentrating solutions in centrifuge cones or, by the addition of a refractory pedestal--can be made into a crucible furnace for size 0 and 00 crucibles. Because much of the chemistry done at LRL is with radioisotopes, disposal of contaminated equipment is an important consideration. In general, furnaces are difficult to decontaminate, hence there was a need for a disposable type. Because nothing meeting the requirements seemed to be commercially available, the Health Chemistry Department made up a simple furnace that has proved useful.
