    Nuclear reactor instrumentation and protection circuits which cover a range of six and one-half decades of reactor power are described. The circuits have been designed to provide maximum protection for the reactor while maintaining the ability to prevent unscheduled shutdowns. To accomplish these features, solid state components and fail-safe designs have been employed wherever feasible. View full abstract»

    Calculations have been performed to estimate the number of atoms displaced from normal sites by Compton Electrons from Co60 gamma rays and by slow and fast neutrons. The resultant change in carrier lifetimes and mobilities are used to predict the performance of a silicon solar cell under gamma and neutron irradiation. The effect of annealing of defects is considered, and from these computations an... View full abstract»

    A log-period amplifier is described which is combined with power supply on a rack mounted chassis with a 7-inch panel. The circuits are transistorized except for electrometer tubes and log diodes. Input power is 25 watts. Noise reducing and calibrating circuits are built in as well as a catching circuit to keep the log diode in its logarithmic range. View full abstract»

    The basic investigation of transistor feedback amplifiers has proven mathematically simple and of great practical value. The behavior of single-stage common-emitter amplifiers is described and provides a building block with which cascaded feedback amplifiers can be analyzed and designed. The problem of designing these amplifiers is complex, and what are felt to be the most important phases of the ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an instrument for displaying intensity profiles of charged-particle beams that emerge from high-energy accelerators. The intensity vs position on a strip of 21 scintillation counters each 1 by 1 cm appears as a histogram on an oscilloscope. The display is accomplished by employing transistor circuits to amplify and integrate the outputs of the multiplier phototubes. The accumu... View full abstract»

    The Trinistor switch is a new semiconductor device which can be used to provide control of large amounts of load power. The characteristics of the Trinistor switch are similar to those of a thyratron because the Trinistor will either absorb a high voltage and prevent the flow of load current or break over to a low voltage and allow load current to flow. A third terminal can be used for the applica... View full abstract»
