Abstract : The range in aluminum of the deuterons accelerated by the 184-inch cyclotron has been measured. The energy deduced from the range-energy curves of J. H. Smith is 196 Mev which is in excellent agreement with the expected value. Range measurements at the same energy have also been made for Be, C, Cu, Mo, Ag, Sn, Pb, and U. These results agree well with as yet unpublished theoretical curves prepared in this laboratory. Approximate measurements of the energy loss per cm path have also been made for these materials relative to aluminum.
