Abstract

The investigation described in this thesis has included a study of the activities in iridium, osmium, and rhenium which were produced by photonuclear reactions in osmium and iridium. Osmium activities produced by slow neutron bombardment on osmium metal have also been investigated. During the course of these experiments a method of concentrating osmium activities by the Szilard-Chaimers process was discovered and was further developed.
