Electron density and ionization phenomena in shock waves ( Book )
2 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The microwave attenuation of the air of shock waves of well-developed shocks within Mach number 7-12 was measured. The time dependence of the microwave attenuation was also carefully studied. The effect of converging or diverging transition sections was investigated by measuring (a) Changes in the Mach speed (b) Changes in the microwave attenuation (c) Optical light emission. (Author)
Plasma Propagation into Low-Pressure Gas and Plasma in a Magnetic Field ( Book )
2 editions published between 1970 and 1972 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The propagation of plasma into an ambient gas at low pressure in the presence of an external electric field was investigated experimentally and theoretically. The important feature is the slow speed of plasma expansion which is of interest in the problem of plasma containment. A possible connection with space physics was sought but not found. The positive column of an arc discharge with and without an external magnetic field was investigated spectroscopically using the singlet-triplet ratio method in helium. Analysis of results showed that the electron-velocity distribution function was not Maxwellian near the wall of the discharge tube. Transfer of the uniform column to the helical form at the critical value of the magnetic field was demonstrated without perturbing the plasma in any way. (Author)
Crystallization in magnetic and electric fields ( Book )
2 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The kinetics of crystal growth on a seed in solutions has been studied for the antiferromagnetic water soluble crystal Cu(CH3000)2H2O I around 1-2C and the rate of growth and dissolution has been investigated for the ferroelectric Rochelle salt crystal NaK C2H4O2(COO)2.4 H2O II around 19 and 24C. The antiferromagnetic Neel point T(N) of I is 7C and the ferroelectric Curie temperature T(c) of II is 24C. The growth of crystals I has been performed also in high magnetic fields up to 142 KOe. Two crystals of I, one outside and the other inside the high magnetic field have been investigated. The Isothermal rate of growth inside the field has been at a temperature about 0.3C higher than outside the field. (Author)
Spectroscopy in the vacuum ultraviolet ranging from 40 to 500 a ( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The spectra of Be(III), Be(IV), Fe(VII) to Fe(XI), Co(IX), to Co(XI), Ni(X), to Ni(XI), Cu(X), to Cu(XIII), Zn(XI) to Zn(XIII), Ga(XII), Ge(XIII), Y(IX) to Y(XIII), Zr(X) to Zr(XIV), Nb(XI) to Nb(XV), and Mo(XII) to Mo(XVI) were studied. These spectra were produced by an intense vacuum spark, operated in a triggered mode. Radiative transitions from autoionizing levels of Be III were observed close to the Lyman alpha line of Be IV. These transitions were classified and the dependence of their intensities on the discharge parameters was determined. A new method for estimating electron temperature was suggested. A new phenomenon of line splitting in extremely dense plasma was observed. The study of the fifth row elements is difficult due to the lack of previous investigation. Here some pioneer work was done. More than 200 new lines of Y, Nb, Zr, and Mo were identified, and a great part of them classified. A new X-ray spectrometer was invented and built to facilitate the study of X-ray spectra emitted from the spark. (Author)

Generation, transport and photoemission processes in molecular crystals ( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Transient photocurrent measurements are employed to study carrier generation and transport processes in iodine and sulphur. The spectral quantum yield for photogeneration of holes in iodine exhibits two peaks: one at 0.45 microns and amounting to 7 percent, the other at about 0.3 microns and amounting to 17 percent. A detailed study of the effect of doping and crystal-growth conditions on transport in sulphur reveals that the hole drift mobility can be controlled over wide limits whereas the electron drift mobility is insensitive to variations in growth conditions and doping. Photoemission of holes and electrons from a metal contact into anthracene has been observed and studied. Useful criteria for distinguishing between such photoemission and spurious effects originating from bulk and surface photoconductivity have been obtained. In the case of holes, the measurement provides a direct means of determining the spectral distribution of the absolute quantum yield of the photoemission process. (Author)
Radiation Effects on Quartz Crystals and Oscillators, and Growth of Doped Quartz Crystals ( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Quartz crystals were grown by the hydrothermal method in NaOH solutions. Rates of growth in the AT and Z directions were measured for undoped and doped quartz (Mg(2+), Ga(3+), V(5+)), using various temperature gradients. All dopants, except Mg(2+), gave rates of growth lower than undoped quartz. Oscillators made of various synthetic and natural Brazilian crystals were irradiated with 5 MeV electrons and effects of irradiation on frequency and on Q-values were measured over the temperature range 77-550 degrees K. Frequency changes and reductions in Q appeared at various temperature ranges. For a High-Q SARP crystal (5 MHz in 5th harmonic) the frequency change by irradiation with about 1,000,000 rads reached about 700 Hz, and appeared mainly below 200 degrees K, just where the strongest thermoluminescence appeared. With the same crystal Q-values at a few temperature ranges were found to be sensitive to irradiation, and in these ranges the crystal even ceased oscillating after irradiation. Most effects of irradiation were canceled by heating to about 500 degrees K. Other crystals exhibited similar radiation effects. (Author)

Investigation on color centers and luminescence in insulating crystals ( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Thermally stimulated luminescence (TSL) and conductivity (TSC) in KBr, x-excited at LAT were measured simultaneously. Most TSL peaks were correlated to TSC peaks. Re-excitation with F-light resulted in high intensity TSC peaks at 143 and 218K and low TSL at 146 and 223K. V light gave different results. Optical bleaching of the F- or F'-bands increased some and reduced other glow peaks. Hexagonal (6H-alpha SiC) silicon carbide crystals including iron and nitrogen were examined. The absorption showed weak bands at 0.62 and about 0.9 microns. The decay of the blue luminescence nearly fitted a power law with slopes of less than one for decay times up to 2msec. Short wavelength components of the band decayed faster compared with those at longer wavelengths. The TSL showed one glow peak near 115K with an activation energy of 0.12-0.13 ev. The TSL and TSC of a Brazilian natural quartz crystal and a synthetic Ge-doped sample as well as their re-excitation and bleaching effects are also described. (Author)

Crystal chemistry and growth of low magnetic anisotropy crystals ( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A method to grow mixed cation substituted yttrium iron garnets (YIG) where the cations are calcium and silicon is described. Special flux solvent is used, based on lead oxide and is free of fluorine. Crystals of the composition (Y(3)-x-y)Ca(x)Bi(y)) (Fe2) (Fe(3-x)) O12 with x varying from 0.4 to 1.2 and y from 0.01 to 0.5 are produced. Some of the crystals could be prepared to contain Mo(6+) up to Z = 0.05. The crystals have a much lower saturation magnetization than YIG depending on the value of x. The microwave resonance absorption has a linewidth in the order of about 30 oersteds. The Curie temperature of the crystals are relatively high and even for x = 1.2 it is above 200C. Single crystals with a composition Yb3 Fe(5-x) Ga(x)O12 with x varying from 0.5 to 4.0 were grown from a PbO-PbF2 flux and the growth conditions were compared. Polycrystalline Cd Cr2S4 material was prepared by two different methods doped with Fe57. Polycrystalline Mo(6+), Ca(2+) and Si(4+) substituted YIG compounds have been prepared and the crystallographic unit cell reported. (Author)
Microwave measurements on shock waves in air ( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The microwave attenuation by shock waves in air was investigated in the Mach No. range of 8 - 12 and at pressures 1-5 mm Hg. It is shown that an analysis of the time dependence of the attenuation yields important information regarding (a) the maximum electron-density (b) the build-up of the electron density and the beginning of the shock, (c) the electron density near the contact surface, and (d) the length of the heated slug section. An investigation was made of the effect of transitions from a larger diameter shock tube to a smaller tube on the maximum microwave attention, on its time dependence, and on the Mach No. In particular, a study was made of the effect of shorter and larger taper sections as well as abrupt transitions for various Mach Numbers and initial pressures.

An X-rayed crystal of Al203 was heated to a fairly high temperature where it emitted a very strong R line radiation of very large intensity. This may result from radiation centers that have been caused by the X-ray radiation transferring their energy to the levels of the R line or a reconversion from a different valence state such as Cr2+ into Cr3+. A special lead-shielded box was designed for placing over the X-ray tube and the spectrometer in order to provide protection from the X-rays scattered over a large angle
