Broad Range Spectrograph for Use With the Rochester 27" Cyclotron

Description: "A broad range nuclear spectrograph of the Buechner-Bainbridge type, which characteristic radius R-50 cm. has been constructed and installed for use in conjunction with the Rochester 27" variable energy cyclotron. For a given magnetic field, particles are focused over an energy range 0.63o‹E‹1.3Eo, where Eo is the energy of particles focused with orbit radius Q-R-50 cm. The resolution of the spectrograph ∆E/E is less than 0.2%. Particles may be recorded either in nuclear emulsions or in an arr… more

Coolball, a Machine Code for Thermal Analysis of Pebble Bed Reactor Cores

Description: COOLBALL is an IBM 650 machine program designed to calculate local gas and ball temperatures, gas flow, and pressure loses as induced by non-uniform power generation and voidage within an axial flow Pebble Bed Reactor core. This code has been used extensively to study the thermal characteristics of Pebble Bed Reactor cores in support of a broad program for the development of the PBR concept.

The Decontamination and Recovery of Precious Metals

Description: "This report is the third quarterly report under Contract AT(30-1)-2528 for the decontamination and recovery of precious metals from contaminated scrap. The results described in [2nd quarterly report] and expanded in this report confirm the statement that the method achieves not only the desired decontamination but also produces a product of high purity. In addition the relative simplicity of the method makes it particularly adaptable to large scale manipulation."

Determination of Particle Size Distribution by X-Ray Absorption

Description: "As it is frequently necessary to know the distribution of particle sizes in various products used in industrial applications, a number of means have been devised for these determinations. Some of them include direct microscopic measurement, screening of product, extraction of samples from a settling slurry as with the Andreasen pipette, air and liquid elutriation, adsorption of gases and liquids, and light absorption."

Fluoroscopic Crystal Investigation

Description: "An investigation was carried out on the possibility of increasing the light output of single crystals by applying an electric field throughout the crystal lattice. Pulses of frequency 2.5 x 10/sup 5/ cps were used with a voltage gradient of 10/sup 4/ volts/cm, and gamma radiation from Cs/sup 1//sup 3// sup 7/ and Co/sup 6//sup 0/ was used to excite the crystals. Tests were run on many types of scintillators. The visible light output was found to be increased by electric pulses for many of the … more

Fuel Element Development Program for the Pebble Bed Reactor

Description: Previous results from the Pebble Bed Reactor Fuel Element Development Program had shown the excellent promise of vapor-deposited Al2O3 doq5intw on UO2 particles as a low permeability high temperature fission product barrier. However, since the matrix material for the PBR fuel element is a graphite sphere, carbonaceous coatings on the dispersed fuel particles might be of more interest because of improved particle coating-matrix compatibility and no displacement of neutron moderating materials. … more

The Relation of Genome Numbers to Radiosensitivity

Description: "This approach to the problem of radiation damage was reported. A comparison of haploid males and diploid females with respect to their radio-sensitivity was made at various stages of embryonic and post-embryonic development. Differences in sensitivity were observed and taken to indicate that genetic damage is involved in the effects of x-rays upon development in Habrobracon juglandis."

A Study of the Mechanism of Radiation Induced Gelation in Monomer-Polymer Mixtures

Description: "The degree of equilibrium swelling of low density polyethylene by various di- and tri-functional monomers has been experimentally determined. Non-extractable portions of irradiated monomer-polymer and monomer-free-polymer samples have been determined by refluxing in a Soxhlet extractor. Irradiated, monomer-free polyethylene samples that give a non-extractable portion after Soxhlet, refluxing dissolve by direct immersion in the same hot solvent.

A Study of the Mechanism of Radiation Induced Gelation in Monomer-Polymer Mixtures

Description: "Polyvinyl chloride degrades quite badly under irradiation due to the ease of splitting out HC1. The incorporation of polyfunctional monomers, however, has been found to lower the radiation doses required for gelation below those which result in degradation. Thus, gelation of polyfunctional monomer-polyvinyl chloride mixtures has been achieved quite readily."

The Sparker, a Divice to Overcome the Multipactor Difficulty in Starting the Oscillator of a Cycloton

Description: "Evacuated electrical oscillating cavities frequently are found to exhibit a strong loading due to electron (or iron) multiplications, the so-called multipactor effect. This effect tends to prevent the buildup of dee voltage in cyclotrons. In conventional cyclotrons driven from external oscillators having their own resonant tank circuits the difficulties are usually slight, but in cyclotrons using a simple dee system as the tank circuit difficulties are encountered in getting the oscillator t… more

A Hooded and Ion Source With a Magnetic Mirror Feature

Description: "The ion source used for hydrogen and deuterium ions in the variable energy cyclotron at the University of Rochester is of the hooded arc type. For the past year it has been operating with a new feature which has greatly improved its performance. The new feature is a magnetic mirror built into the upper end of the arc hood by a simple insertion of a steel bearing ball 1/8" in diameter. The magnetic field gradient near the ball provides a magnetic mirror action on electrons moving up the arc ch… more

Diffusion of Krypton Through Uranium Carbide - Final Report

Description: This program was established to develop new information concerning the mechanism of diffusion of fission gases (krypton and xenon) through UO2 and UC. The work was to concentrated on measurements of diffusion rates in unirradiated materials in the temperature range of 1000°C to above 2000°C, these determinations being important to the projected use of refractory fuel materials in high-temperature, high-burnup reactors.

Description: "An analysis is presented of the accidental release of activity following the operation of the NS "Savannah" at the New York Shipbuilding Corporation docks in Camden, New Jersey. Although a number of accidents are considered, the report is primarily concerned with the environmental activity levels and subsequent exposures which would result from the "maximum credible accident" (p. v).

A Theory of Hyperfragments

Description: "Mesic decay of hyperfragments is discussed systematically on the basis of a previous model for hyperfragments. The general formalism for the two-body and three-body mesic decay was developed. The polarization-direction correlation and the angular correlation for the two-body and the three-body decays are discussed together with the decay probability. The formalism was developed so as to include the isotopic spin selection rule ( DELTA I = 1/2 and 3/2) for the mesic decays. The theory was appli… more

Alternating Direction and Semi-Explicit Difference Methods for Parabolic Partial Differential Equations

Description: "The energy method is applied to study the stability of two types of difference approximations to parabolic partial differential equations, the alternating direction methods Douglas, Peaceman, and Rachford, and a new semi- explicit method. Each difference scheme is proved to be unconditionally stable. These results apply to parabolic equations with variable coefficients, defined in cylindrical domains with an essentially arbitrary bounded base."

Hamiltonian Dynamics of Relativistic Particles

Description: "The canonical (hamiltonlan) formulation of a relativistic dynamical theory is outlined, and the existence and explicit construction of general hamiltonian theories of relativiatic interacting particles are discussed. These hamiltonian theories are shown to contain certain elements of arbitrariness which are eliminated in manifestly coveriant formulations."
