Abstract : Alumina, glasses, and BeO samples have been examined by means of infrared and other techniques. Infrared sample cells in which samples could be heated to 900 C have been made. Variable light attenuators made by etching wire screens were developed. Knudsen flow adsorption systems were developed and tested. A device for measuring the population of hydrogen atoms in an activated hydrogen gas was developed and described. The conversion of Be(OH)2 to BeO was studied, as was the reaction of hydrogen with BeO. Some evidence for a reaction of BeO with hydrocarbons was found. The mechanism of hydrogen sorption by BeO is discussed. (Author)
