    The critical needs of nuclear science have motivated a trend toward distributed computer systems for data acquisition and control. Such systems combine the flexibility of distributed input/output systems with the capability of handling high data rates and critical control loops by localized intelligence and data reduction. Common problems of such systems such as data rate variations, analysis of a... View full abstract»

    The potential hazards of the high level waste produced by one year of all nuclear power in the U. S. are calculated as a function of time for direct gamma radiation, inhalation, and ingestion, and scales are given for consequences of the worst credible handling. The probability for buried waste to be released into the environment by several pathways is estimated, and several factors of related int... View full abstract»

    We have developed a computer program to study the magnitude and time dependence of the net power and net energy generated by an expanding system of identical power plants. Application of the program to several expansion modes over a range of values for the rate of expansion, the net energy generated by an individual plant, and the construction time for each plant has led to some interesting result...

    The principle non-destructive assay systems used by the Agency in safeguards verification activities are passive techniques, particularly those which use signatures of gamma ray. The reason is that passive techniques are adaptable to the portable equipment of the international inspector. Further development and miniaturization of the portable equipment for nuclear material assay measurements depen... View full abstract»

  • Charge Collection in Surface Channels on High-Purity Ge Detectors

    Studies with collimated low energy ¿-ray beams show that for ¿-ray interactions within a "dead layer" of thickness about 1 mm at the surface of a Ge detector, the pulse height distribution is characteristic of single carrier collection. Independent measurements of the charge transport parameters also show that the majority carriers in the surface channel do not contribute to the charge pulse. View full abstract»

  • Origin and Control of the Dominant Impurities in High-Purity Germanium

    Techniques have been developed to consistently purify germanium to the 1010 atoms/cm3 range. The major impurities are the acceptors boron and aluminum and the donor phosphorous. Formation of nonsegregating compounds of boron and aluminum make these elements difficult to remove by conventional zone refining whereas phosphorous and all other electrically-active impurities segregate normally and are ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (708 KB)

    Germanium crystals with radial impurity gradients have been prepared by diffusing Li into p-type material and then extracting most of it at the surface to produce n-core crystals. The diffusion is designed to produce coaxial detectors which reach full depletion at the inner and outer radii simultaneously, thereby minimizing the leakage which is caused by electrical stress at the electrodes. The de... View full abstract»

  • The Effect of Dislocation on the Energy Resolution of High-Purity Germanium Detectors

    The energy resolution of high-purity Ge detectors depends on the dislocation density and distribution in the single crystal. This correlation could be shown in a number of planar detectors with different dislocation densities. Scanning with collimated electrons and gamma-rays revealed the strong dependence of local detector performance on dislocation density. View full abstract»

    Fe-doped high purity GaAs crystals have been grown using a vertical-type liquid-phase epitaxial technique and have been studied as room temperature gamma-ray spectrometric detectors for nuclear fuel safeguards. To improve the detector gamma-ray counting efficiency, a double-epitaxial-layer detector was studied. View full abstract»

    Measurement results obtained with HgI2 detectors at room temperature in the low energy x-ray region down to 2 keV are reported. The best resolution obtained is 548 e V for 5.9 keV x-rays, and the 2.01 keV phosphorous x-ray line has been resolved with a detector with an area of 14 mm2. The different noise sources of the detector-amplifier system are analysed and polarization effects in the detector... View full abstract»
