Abstract : The object of this investigation was to determine the feasibility of preparing uranium single crystals similar in structural perfection to those prepared by the grain coarsening procedure (see Part III, ANL-502l). In this respect, the investigation has not been completed Although it was found feasible to prepare single crystals of relatively large dimensions, the structural perfection of the single crystals was far from desirable for most purposes. jg p.6
