Low-Temperature Research on Transuranic Metals

  • K. Mendelssohn
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 6)


The physical properties of the transuranic metals are of considerable interest for a number of reasons. Plutonium in particular is becoming increasingly important in ‘the large-scale production of power and it, as well as neptunium, is interesting as a member of a new series of elements which in some ways appears to resemble that of the rare earth metals. A good deal of the relevant information concerning the physical behavior of these metals has to be obtained by measurement of their low-temperature properties.
