Title: Temperature Dependent Magnetoresistance of CeCu2Si2 up to 60 T [Proposal: P14728]

Abstract

We recently investigated the chemical substitution series CeCu2Si2-xPx, for x = 0, 0.01, and 0.14, using a contactless tunnel diode oscillator technique. These measurements revealed previously unreported Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations above 45 T with an unusual temperature dependence that could potentially be explained by a high magnetic field transition. To investigate this possible transition, magnetoresistance measurements were desired. However, initial magnetoresistance measurements on CeCu2Si2 showed poor signal-to-noise due to the small value of the sample's resistivity. To overcome this obstacle, we performed micro-structuring of a single crystal specimen to increase the sample's resistance.

  • Various physiological modifications following gamma radiation were examined. Emphasis was placed on those which may be caused by, or aided by, alteration in degree of endocrine activity. An attempt was made to correlate the modifications with dosage or gross physical effects. Young, male, Charles River rats were exposed to wholebody doses of 0.25, 2.8, 29, 289, 729, 763, 804, 842, and 1040 rads of Co/sup 60/ radiation. The urines were analysed in particular for calcium, phosphate, and urea content. It was found that other stress induction modifies the response, but that the change induced by irradiation is still clearly indicated.more » The values for the first 24 hours after exposure were clearly grouped into those that will survive for 30 days post irradiation and those that will die within the 30 day period. Those that die have a high excretion rate of the measured constituents and those that survive have a marked retention. The responses measured clearly begin at levels as low as 2.8 rads. (auth)« less
  • Giant multipole resonances and bound states in Ni/sub 58/ and Ni/sub 60/ were studied with inelastic scattering of electrons at 102 MeV incident energy and scattering angles of 45, 60, 75, 90, and 105 degrees. In the energy interval from 5 to 50 MeV excitation energy, eleven and thirteen states or resonances were observed in Ni/sub 58/ and Ni/sub 60/, respectively. Additionally, electroexcitation at low momentum transfer where the E1 cross section is predominantly excited shows a pronounced difference in cross section for Ni/sub 58/ when compared to Ni/sup 6//sub 0/ and for (e,e') as compared to photon experiments.
  • Some kinds of pregraphitic carbons exhibit temperature-dependent negative magnetoresistance even at helium temperatures. To account for this anomalous behavior, two assumptions were introduced. First, the sample is composed of an assembly of many thin films nearly independent of each other elastically. Second, ionized impurity scattering makes an important contribution to the resistivity. Rayleigh waves with small damping and small sound velocity propagate through each film and the scattering due to the Rayleigh-wave phonons gives rise to a carrier relaxation rate that decreases as the square of the thin-film thickness. Since the screening length of an ionized impurity potential decreases withmore » magnetic field, this process leads to a negative magnetoresistance. Combining these two effects, the qualitative features of the temperature-dependent negative magnetoresistance can be explained within the framework of Bright's Theory.« less
  • The examination of 27 fuel pins irradiated in the Plum Brook reactor facility is described. Curtailment of NASA sponsored nuclear programs prevented a complete examination of all pins. Nevertheless, results include fuel pin integrity, clad ductility, clad strain, fission gas release, fuel burnup, fuel swelling, neutron fluence, metallography, and instrumentation reliability. Twenty-two fuel pins were tested for fission gas leaks; 13 pins leaked with two having visible cracks. Fuel swelling appeared to be primarily burnup dependent for burnup values up to 2 at. %. Maximum burnup reached in these tests was 2.34 at. %. In general, the fuel pellets didmore » not crack or crumble and fuel metallography remained unchanged. The amount of fission gas released from the fuel was low, generally less than 0.5%. The maximum amount released was 2%. No incompatibilities between fuel, liner, and clad were evident.« less
  • The total cross sections for the reaction t + t were determined in the triton energy range of 60 to 1140 kev. The measurements were conducted with a thin gaseous target. The total cross section increases monotonously from 10 mb at 60 kev up to 82 mb at 1140 kev. A comparison of the total cross sections for the reactions t + t and He/sup 3/ + He/sup 3/ indicates that the contribution of direct interaction processes is essential. (auth)
