AN INFORMATION STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL SYSTEM FOR IRRADIATION EFFECTS IN METALS

Description: An information storage and retrieval system (PIC) was developed, utilizing the IBM 7090 computer, for handling data pertaining to the effects of neutron irradiation on metals. The input includes a reference identification, an appropriate abstract or extract summarizing the article, code identification parameters analogous to those used by the ASM-SLA Literature Classification System, and special codes identifying relevant irradiation and testing parameters. The output contains the same data plu… more

Physics Performance of the EBWE in Its Zero to 100 Mw Operation

Description: The distribution of fuel elements in the EBWR core is described. Spike elements with boron steel strips were provided in the core for burnup allowance. A calibration of the control rod system with Zircaloy followers was made. Void coefficient measurements were made for two different H/sub 3/BO/sub 3/ concentrations. Power runs were made, and reactivity loss vs. power characteristic was obtained. Steam remaining in the core, or carryunder,'' was indicated. Some of the spikes were remov… more

Analysis of Vanadium in Milk Powder by Neutron Activation Analysis Using a Rapid Radiochemical Separation of 3.77-Minute Vanadium-52

Description: A procedure is described for the activation determination of V in powdered milk using 3.77-min V/sup 52/. The quantity of V in the sample is obtained by comparing the V/sup 52/ radioactivity found in the test sample with the V/sup 52/ radioactivity in a V comparator sample that is treated in the same manner as the test sample. The procedure can also be used for the determination of V in a variety of materials. (P.C.H.)

Radioisotopic heat sources. Revision 1

Description: For the radioisotopes with half-lives over a year, only eight appear to be obtainable in the foreseeable future. The fission products, strontium-90, cesium-137, and promethium-147, exist in wastes from reactor processing, diluted with enormous volumes of other elements and salts. Among those isotopes producible by irradiation of special target materials (cobalt-60, uranium-232, plutonium-238, and curium-244) cobalt-60, though easy to produce, requires a special design for the heat source genera… more

Activation of electrical machinery. Supplement 1. [Preliminary evaluation; not applicable to ground tests]

Description: The following analysis of the induced radioactivity in SNAP-50/SPUR electrical machinery having a high cobalt content is submitted. Induced radioactivity in the flight vehicle will contribute negligibly to allowable radiation levels. This is especially so due to the low neutron to gamma ratio of assumed radiation damage tolerances to semiconductors. A calculation to estimate the order of magnitude of induced radioactivity in cobalt is attached. The calculation is based on a best guess of the ne… more

BETA-RAY SPECTROMETER WITH REDUCED SPHERICAL ABERRATION

Description: Modern {beta}-ray spectrometers are based upon the concept, first introduced by Svartholm and Siegbahn in 1946, of focusing in both the radial and vertical directions. The theory of axially symmetric devices has been carefully studied by a large number of workers, culminating in the analysis, in 1956, of Lee-Whiting and Taylor. These last authors calculate aberrations through the sixth order and show that by appropriate choice of the magnetic field a spectrometer can be designed with a relative… more

LONGITUDINAL RESISTIVE INSTABILITIES OF INTENSE COASTING BEAMS IN PARTICLE ACCELERATORS

Description: The longitudinal electromagnetic interaction of an intense coasting beam with itself, including the effect of a resistive vacuum tank, is investigated theoretically. It is shown that even in the range where the particle frequency is an increasing function of particle energy, the beam can be longitudinally unstable due to the resistivity of the vacuum tank walls. In the absence of frequency spread in the unperturbed beam the beam is shown to be always unstable against longitudinal bunching with … more

BREMSSTRAHLUNG IN A DENSE PLASMA

Description: The bremsstrahlung emitted by an electron scattered in a Coulomb field was first calculated by Bethe and Heitler. The total cross section for production of photons with wave number between k and k + dk by a nonrelativistic electron of kinetic energy {epsilon} is d{sigma}/dk dk = 16/3 Z{sup 2}r{sub 0}{sup 2} (e{sup 2}/hc) (mc{sup 2}/{epsilon})log ({radical} {epsilon}/hck + {radical} {epsilon}/hck -1) dk/k, where Ze is the charge of the (heavy) ion, and r{sub 0} is the classical electron radius. … more

PION SCATTERING FROM A POLARIZED TARGET

Description: This report describes the use of a target containing polarized protons in a particle-scattering experiment. Positive pions of 246-MeV kinetic energy were scattered from the polarized protons. The parameter P that was measured is equivalent to that determined by analyzing the recoil-proton polarization in scattering from an unpolarized target. It has been measured to a higher accuracy than heretofore achieved in pion-proton scattering, at an energy and at angles inconvenient for double-scatterin… more

CORRELATION EFFECTS IN MANY FERMION SYSTEMS: MULTIPLE PARTICLE EXCITATION EXPANSION

Description: The ground-state wave function and energy of a finite system of interacting fermions are expanded in terms of multiple-particle excitations on an uncorrelated zero-order state. The resulting set of coupled equations constitutes a systematic variational generalization of Hartree-Fock theory. Comparison is made with many-body perturbation theory and it is shown that to any order the theory incorporates an infinite number of perturbation theory terms. Solutions of the equations for ground-state at… more

Re-Evaluation of Chemical Potential of Imperial Irrigation District Well No. 1

Description: The chemical potential of the brine from I.I.D. Well No. 1 was evaluated and reported in Rogers Engineering Coo, Inc. March 1962 Flow Test Report. This evaluation considered only the recovery of sodium chloride, as the prime salable product and alternately as the raw material for conversion to salable chlorine and caustic. Both cases showed low net revenue relative to the estimated capital investment required. The subsequent three month well flow test indicates continued production of a consist… more

THE LIFETIME OF BACTERIAL MESSENGER RNA

Description: Puromycin, an inhibitor of protein synthesis, appears to act as an inhibitor at additional sites during the induction of {beta}-galactosidase synthesis. No inhibition of the reactions proceeding during the first 20 seconds of induction was observed, but puromycin seems to prevent the accumulation of messenger RNA during the period between 20 seconds and the first appearance of enzyme activity after 3 minutes. When cells from a stationary culture are placed in fresh medium containing inducer for… more

OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF CHROMOPHORE-MACROMOLECULE COMPLEXES:ABSORPTION AND FLUORESCENCE OF ACEIDINE DIES BOUND TO POLYPHOSPHATES ANDDNA

Description: Dye-macromolecule complexes provide good models for the study of the effects of coupling between chromophores. In addition to modifications of the visible and UV absorption spectra of the dyes at small interchromophore distances, very efficient energy transfer has been demonstrated at longer distances. The probability of nonradiative transition increases with the number of excitation transfers so that an array of oscillators close to one another becomes nonfluorescent. The insertion of a dye mo… more
