The objective of the program covered by this report was to determine and evaluate the mechanisms by which fallout particles from nuclear weapons are formed. Towards this end, the current projects emphasize reactions between gaseous fission elements and solid target materials materials extraneous to the fissionable material of a weapon. Discussed is the sticking phenomena, the measurement of sticking coefficients, the correlation of sticking coefficients to physical parameters, and oxidation studies.
