Computer Is Handy
Lee A. Feldkamp, a graduate student from Ann Arbor, reads out data from computer at the base of the U-M's Ford Nuclear Reactor in research on the structure of Polyethylene. Neutrons from the reactor prove to be better for analysis of structure of light materials than X-rays which have advantages in examining heavy materials. The computer is the kind being used more and more by industry for operating machine tools. Feldkamp is shielded from radiation coming from the reactor core by concrete.
