Flight data on neutron fluxes and dose rates obtained over a wide range of latitudes and altitudes are compared with several models of atmospheric radiation for both quiet-time and solar particle events. For quiet-time, general agreement between the models and measurements is within about 25%. Geomagnetic disturbances can increase atmospheric cosmic ray(More)
We use Mie scattering theory to determine the expected thermal emission from dust grains in cometary comae and apply these results to mid-infrared images of comet Hyakutake (C/1996 B2) obtained preperihelion in 1996 March. Calculations were performed for dust grains in the size range from 0.1 to 10 micrometers for two different compositions: amorphous(More)
A compact neutron spectrometer, based on a CH foil for the production of recoil protons and CR-39 detection, is being developed for the measurements of the DD-neutron spectrum at the NIF, OMEGA, and Z facilities. As a CR-39 detector will be used in the spectrometer, the principal sources of background are neutron-induced tracks and intrinsic tracks (defects(More)
The C4H2+ diacetylene radical cation has been generated in a pulsed jet electrical discharge through both a diacetylene/argon mixture and an acetylene/argon mixture. The product mixture was trapped on a 12 K cryostat window and studied via Fourier transform infrared absorption spectroscopy. The diacetylene cation was also produced via low energy electron(More)
We present oxygen abundances of dwarfs in the young open cluster IC 4665 deduced from the O I λ7774 triplet lines and of dwarfs in the open cluster Pleiades derived from the [O I] λ6300 forbidden line. Stellar parameters and oxygen abundances were derived using the spectroscopic synthesis tool SME (Spectroscopy Made Easy). We find a dramatic increase in the(More)
