Abstract:

Gas evolution of lead azide upon irradiation with an absorbed dose of 4.3 x 10 to the 16th power evg.sec in the 0-100C range at a residual pressure of .0001 mm Hg was studied. It was found that the gas evolution rate during irradiation is directly proportional to the surface area of the irradiated substance.
