    A theory outlining the mechanism of the low pressure hydrogen plasma used in radio frequency proton sources is given. Taking into account secondary emission from surfaces of plasma vessel it is shown that the electron density is maximum at the tube's center. This is confirmed experimentally, and a source is designed with its extraction electrode positioned radially near the plasma center. Compared... View full abstract»

    The high power distributed amplifier system for the Princeton-Pennsylvania Accelerator employs a total of 166 Eimac 4CX300A tetrodes to achieve an average power gain of 5000. The system is designed to work over a range of frequencies of 2.5 to 30Mc/s, but is capable of amplifying 60 Mc/s at a reduced duty cycle. The high level stages of the system limit the effective duty cycle to 25%, at the norm... View full abstract»

    A phase error detecting system designed for the RF system of the 3-Bev Princeton-Pennsylvania Proton Synchrotron is described. It serves as a link in the servo loop to keep ferrite tuned RF load to track the driving signal which sweeps from 2.5 to 30 mc/s at repetition rate of 20 cps. The input signals are shifted to a constant intermediate frequency of 455 kc/s by mixing with a specially generate... View full abstract»

    Part I A mathematical presentation of linear accelerator fundamental design parameters leads to optimization formulae for X-ray output and operational stability. A narrow spread of electron energies is desirable in most linear accelerator applications and especially when post-acceleration beam bending is utilized to project a stable high energy X-ray beam at right angles to the accelerator wavegui...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1717 KB)

    An external beam-bunch selector has been built to modulate the beam of the NASA 60-inch cyclotron for neutron time-of-flight studies. Electrostatic deflection at one-fourth the cyclotron frequency is used to lengthen the beam burst period, so that longer flight times can be used. The design and performance of this apparatus are described. With this equipment, flight times up to 400 nanoseconds are... View full abstract»

    The design features of an induction electron accelerator which is under construction at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory at Livermore, California, are described. The basic parameters are beam energy 4 Mev, beam current 200 amperes, pulse length 0.25 ¿sec, repetition rate 60 per second. The design beam quality is to be <10-2 radian-cm and the energy spread is to be ±0.5% during the useful part o... View full abstract»

    A 1000-megawatt peak-power linear electron accelerator is required for the injection of electrons into a thermonuclear fusion experimental device, called the Astron, which is now under construction at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory in Livermore, California. The Astron will determine the feasibility of an actual power-producing fusion reactor utilizing the principles of confinement and heating o... View full abstract»

    For controlled thermonuclear devices of moderate volume employing externally applied magnetic fields, the magnetic energy requirements extend into the megajoule range. A high-voltage series-parallel bank of electrolytic capacitors can supply this energy reliably and inexpensively. The total cost of the bank, including charging supplies, controls, and labor, is less than 14 cents per joule. Require... View full abstract»

    The Scylla experimental program has shown that a small volume of high temperature (>107°K) plasma can be produced by the application of a fast-rising, sinusoidal, axial magnetic field to a volume of partially ionized deuterium gas. The apparatus described was designed to produce a plasma with the same final density and temperature as in a net energy-producing plasma but for a much shorter contain... View full abstract»

    The use of either nuclear reactor or radioisotope powerplants in space requires nuclear radiation shielding for personnel and equipment. When certain approximations are valid, a simplified method permits rapid shield design. The equations for two-layer and three-layer shields are presented, and the limitations of the equations are indicated. View full abstract»

    The application of statistics to the measurement of random signals, with particular emphasis on count-rate-meters, is considered. It is shown that under certain criteria, there are optimum values of time constants in the countrate-meter circuit that will produce the desired results. While the emphasis is placed on the count-rate-meter, the same approach can be used to measure signals in the presen... View full abstract»

    In a simple image tube in which the uniformly accelerated electrons are focused by a homogeneous magnetic field onto the phosphor, the error in focusing due to the aribtrary initial velocity of the photoelectrons is calculated. It is shown that optimm resolution can be obtained if focusing is adjusted for electrons leaving the cathode at the average initial forward velocity. A method to measure th... View full abstract»
