Several operational magnetic amplifier stages of low and medium power levels were designed and tested in a nuclear radiation environment to levels of 1 x 1016 neutrons/cm2 (E > 0.1 Mev) and were found to exhibit acceptable performance. Various diode characteristics were obtained under radiation to correlate behavior with amplifier designs. Diode test results are presented for irradiations at three different reactor facilities.
