This paper presents the characterization of uranium compounds after a fire occurred during handling of a calorimeter composed of uranium plates at the CERN (Nuclear Research European Center, Geneva, Switzerland). The evaluation of the cut of ignited samples allows several hypotheses on the origin of the fire ignition. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We have performed inelastic neutron scattering experiments to investigate the magnetic excitations in UCu[sub 2]Sn, which is quadrupole ordered below 16 K. The low-energy magnetic scattering at 7 K is dominated by excitations at 4.4 and 8.9 meV which exhibit a strong temperature dependence. We...
