Abstract Results are reported from measurements on single crystals and powdered potassium chromate prepared from the same batch of crystals and subjected to thermal neutron irradiation. The powder underwent a much more rapid thermal annealing than the single crystals. The effects of crushing and pre-irradiation of the single crystals on retention were measured. A comparison was made of the retention and thermal annealing of samples of normal lithium chromate with a sample containing only lithium-7. Data are presented graphically. It is concluded that the results clearly establish a relation between the crystal defects or inactive damage centers in the crystal and the behavior of the recoil fragments. (C.H.)
