Title: NEUTRON-DEFICIENT POLONIUM ISOTOPES FROM NEON ION BOMBARDMENT OF WOLFRAM

Abstract

In a series of experiments, cyclotron-accelerated neon ions have been used to bombard different kinds of wolfram targets. The alpha activities of the reaction products have been studied. Several neutron-deficient polonium isotopes were found, one of which was assigned to Po/sup 196/. The half life was determined to be 1.8 minutes, and the alpha panticles emitted had an energy ot 6.13 Mev. An activity with a half life of 0.5 minutes and alpha-particle energy of about 6.23 Mev has also been observed. This activity is probably identical with the one earlier assigned to Po/sup 195/. Decay data of some neutron- deficient polonium isotopes have been redetermined. (auth)
