    In the design of cyclotron resonant systems, the voltage distribution along the accelerating electrodes (dees) is frequently desired. This paper describes an approximate method for obtaining this vsw. An experimental check of the method is included. In addition, data on Oak Ridge National Laboratory Cyclotrons are presented.

    It is very desirable to operate vacuum tubes in such a manner that the operation of the over-all circuit is essentially independent of large changes in tube characteristics. The technique of "hard-bottoming" of vacuum tubes in two-state circuits obtains operation that, in many cases, is unchanged until the vacuum tubes are almost completely inoperative by ordinary standards. Negative feedback has,... View full abstract»

    Operational and theoretical experience with the ORNL 44-inch and 63-inch cyclotrons is used in estimating the time variation of proton beam current passing through the rf field between the dees of the ORNL 44-inch cyclotron. The proton current appears to have a significant reactive component. This result is probably typical of most fixed frequency cyclotrons whose ions make 30-100 orbits in being ... View full abstract»

  • Electronic Analog Devices for Design of Reactor Controls

    Nuclear reactors for power production require essentially two control regimes-one for start-up and the other about design point power. The start-up regime requires controls and instrumentation for neutron flux. The power regime is one in which temperatures must be controlled. The Bell-Strauss simulator has been used successfully for development of neutron flux control equipment. Nuclear power plan... View full abstract»

    The microtron (electron cyclotron) originated about the same time, if not earlier, than the synchrotron, but because of limitations as well as assets, its development (reviewed here) has been slow. The potentialities of the microtron in various fields of nuclear and electronic research are discussed. Some of its desirable characteristics are: (a) a fixed magnetic field microwave accelerator capabl... View full abstract»

    A thallium-activated sodium iodide gamma monitor is described which utilizes both the ac and dc components of the anode current of a multiplier phototube. The dc component serves to monitor over a range of 104 the gross gamma activity of selected points in a solvent extraction plant for the processing of spent nuclear fuel. From the ac component a gamma energy analysis is obtained over an activity... View full abstract»
