DURING recent studies of the properties of radicals trapped at low temperatures it has been found that the presence of bubbles in the body of a boiling refrigerant can be eliminated by introducing a stream of a gas which is comparatively insoluble in the refrigerant. In a typical experiment a small, unsilvered Dewar flask was half-filled with liquid nitrogen at atmospheric pressure, vigorous bubbling of the liquid being observed. When a jet of helium, hydrogen, or neon gas was blown over the… CONTINUE READING
