- The major accomplishments during the first nine months of this grant are the following: (a) Heat treatment of stainless steel in air at 900/sup 0/C produces a Cr/sub 2/O/sub 3/ coating which is an excellent diffusion barrier for preventing SS components at elevated temperatures to enter into a thermal absorber coating stack like Honeywell's AMA on Mo coating. This simple-to-apply oxide coating allowed to raise the operating temperature (in vacuum) from <500/sup 0/C to >800/sup 0/C without noticeable diffusion of constituents from SS into the coating. (b) The experiments with a torus magnetically enhanced ring-gap discharge showed that it should be possible to coat by sputtering rather economically SS tubing with the AMA-Mo stack. (c) A rather unexpected turn of events occurred when it was discovered that one can enrich metal isotopes by sputtering. (d) In support of other ERDA's grantees, various Auger and ESCA services were provided.
