In 1960 I attended a European conference on isotope separation, after which I visited the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. A staff member there ventured the opinion that the separation of isotopes will be first on the list of important contributions to the peaceful uses of the atom when the Atomic Energy Commission's memoirs are written in the year 2000. In 1968 the AEC Division of Research contracted with the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences to conduct a review…

Stable isotope enrichment capabilities at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the US Department of Energy—Nuclear Physics Program have built a high-resolution electromagnetic isotope separator (EMIS) as a prototype for

Stable isotope separation in calutrons: Forty years of production and distribution

The stable isotope separation program, established in 1945, has operated continually to provide enriched stable isotopes and selected radioactive isotopes, including the actinides, for use in

Preparative scale mass spectrometry: A brief history of the calutron.

Bulk separation of isotopes for bomb production ceased in 1945 and since that time calutrons have been used to separate stable isotopes, but on a more limited scale than wartime weapons production.

A new method of isotope enrichment and separation: preferential embedding of heavier isotopes of Xe into amorphous solid water.

A new method for isotope separation involving the embedding of atoms and molecules into ice based upon isotope dependent embedding, i.e. capture, in a cryogenic matrix which exhibits excellent single-pass enrichment as demonstrated successfully for selected isotopes of Xe.
