The irradiation apparatus
posted by: lrose
June 29 –This is the apparatus that Becky and I built to irradiate the samples. the chamber that hangs down is where the Polonium and the sample are housed. The nitrogen gas is passed through the tube-like top chamber and the glove is attached to pressurize the chamber to insure that nitrogen fills the chamber. we put a whole in the glove for the nitrogen to slowly escape.
