... water and oxygen with no significant formation of hydrogen gas ( Ref 45 , 55 ). In the second region, (b), oxygen has been depleted, and uranium reacts with essentially deaerated water and hydrogen gas is evolved ( Ref 45 , 55 ). Measurements of the oxidation rates show that, after oxygen is consumed...

... radiation except the effective beam with heavy shielding at the anode. This is usually recognized by manufacturers of high-voltage x-ray equipment. For example, in some linear accelerators, depleted-uranium collimators confine the beams to a 22° included angle. Unless a high-energy x-ray beam is well...
