- Work was begun on the construction of an apparatus for measuring the total activity of the fission inert gases contained in uranium compounds. Apparatus for continuous measurement of Ar/sup 41/ diffusion in potassium salts and of Xe/sup 133/ diffusion in uranium oxides and for discontinuous measurements of Xe/sup 133/ and Kr/sup 85/ diffusion in uranium carbide are described. It was found that organic potassium salts are unsuitable for the diffusion measurements. The materials necessary were obtained. Preliminary tests on the apparatus were completed. (M.C.G.)
