Abstract:

The experimental nuclear physics program concentrated on the application of the resonance fluorescence method to the measurement of the properties of excited states of nuclei, and on preparations for a modification of the Bartol-ONR Van de Graff which will make it possible to switch from protons to electrons without the need to open the machine. The theoretical investigations were concerned with the isobaric splitting of nuclear dipole states and with the properties of odd-parity states in Y90 and Zr90. Studies of the variation of the intensity of the nucleonic component of the cosmic radiation as a function of altitude and geographic position have continued with the cooperation of the U. S. Naval Oceanographic Office. Data are now available for making a detailed comparison of similar observations conducted at solar maximum and solar minimum. In addition, the primary objectives of the neutron multiplicity experiments have been achieved during the past year. Author
