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.

Scientists At Work At left, Prof. William Kerry, chairman of the U-M nuclear engineering department and director of the Phoenix (atoms-for-peace) Project, operates neutron scattering equipment at base of the Ford Nuclear Reactor in the Phoenix Memorial Laboratory on the North Campus. Neutrons, provided by the reactor, scatter in various directions when passing through the target material and may gain or lose energy.

Work Goes On In the picture above, David Rawling, nuclear chemist, manipulates mechanical hands inside one of the "caves" near the base of the U-M's Ford Nuclear Reactor to put radioactive material into jar. Protected by the three-foot thick windows of the cave, he is able to handle by remote mechanical means materials which otherwise would be too dangerous to manipulate. The work he is doing involves making up radioactive bromine for General Motors Corp. to use in measuring oild consumption in car motors.

Work Goes On Meanwhile, in picture at right, James E. Fairobent of Ann Arbor (right) and David G. Curtin of Saginaw, both U-M meteorolgy students, use gamma ray spectrometry in analysis of rain water. The work is being carried out in a laboratory of the U-M Phoenix Memorial Building on North Campus. Researchers from a variety of fields use the Phoenix laboratories and radioactive materials provided by the Ford Nuclear Reactor in carrying out a multitude of diverse research projects.

INVESTIGATE HOT ATOMS: Prof. Adon A. Gordus of the chemistry department samples gasses in which radioactive atoms are formed with energies equal to those that would be acquired if they were heated to 1,000,000 degrees. He and his fellow researchers are studying unique chemical reactions that result from the "hot" atoms.

SEEK CURES FOR DISEASE: U-M medical researchers use every possible avenue, including atomic energy, in their quest for better ways of treating the sick and preventing disease. Here, Prof.P. C. Rajam of the bacteriology department and Miss Shanti K. Seth, a graduate student from India, replace hydrogen atoms from blood serum with tritium, an isotope of hydrogen, in studies that pertain to various diseases.
