Progress is reported in a program of mass spectrometric studies of graphite vaporization kinetics. Emphasis has been placed on measurement of reflection coefficients for the three major constituents of carbon vapor impinging on a heated graphite surface. Use of modulation techniques has been employed to detect a reflected beam interacting with the graphite surface to Ts or 2600K. Development of a vapor source for an isotopically enriched carbon beam using graphite powder is described.
