Israel Submits Five Papers to International Parley on Atomic Energy

Download PDF for this date

Israel has submitted five scientific papers to the forthcoming International Conference for the Peaceful Uses of Atomic Energy which opens in Geneva August 8. A total of 945 papers have been presented so far by 23 governments the United Nations International Labor Organization, World Health Organization and the UN Food and Agricultural Organization.

Israel thus far is the only government in the Middle East to have submitted any papers to the atomic energy conference. Along with many other governments, Israel submitted a comprehensive report on its energy requirements. While this paper entitled “The Energy Requirements of the State of Israel,” like all the other abstracts sent to the UN so far is being kept confidential for the time being it is understood to embrace calculations of Israel’s future needs for power for a period of at least fifty years.

The other papers submitted by Israel are titled as follows “Measurements of Natural Water Sources as Aid in Prospecting for Underground Deposits of Uranium;” “The Design of Isotope Separation Plants-Some Basic Designed Equations for the Distillation Process;” “Application of Radioactive Carbon Labelled Substances in the Study of the Formation and Destruction of Body Fats, ” and “The Medical Use of Radioactive Isotopes in the Radio and Tumor Institute of the Hadassah-University Hospital in Jerusalem.”

It was noted here that Israel has so far not submitted a paper dealing with its successful manufacture of heavy water–a process in which Israel is outstanding.

An exhibition of 3,000 Israel scientific works will be held in Paris from June 1-10 to acquaint the French public with Israel’s accomplishments in and contributions to such fields as agriculture, medicine, physics and chemistry. The exhibition, which also is aimed at solidifying the relations between the Israel and French scientific worlds is under the patronage of a committee headed by Prince Louis de Brozlie and Israel Ambassador Yaacov Tsur.
