    Space radiation has induced damage to spacecraft in near earth orbits in a number of documented cases. Explorer XIV, Explorer XV, UK-1, TRAAC, TRANSIT IV B and TELSTAR I were among these. It has become imperative that an adequate laboratory simulation technique be found and applied to future spacecraft to extend the useful lifetime of spacecraft and prevent premature failures. The choice of the eq... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1329 KB)

    A survey of the new work in the neutron monitoring of a nuclear power reactor is presented. The sensors have been moved into the reactor and the three modes of measurement necessary to cover the ten decades of the in-core neutron range from startup to rated power are described. The system specifications and life performance data are reviewed. Several innovative extensions of in-core monitoring suc... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1162 KB)

    The requirements for radiation monitoring from an integrated instrumentation system aspect are developed with emphasis on the detection and control of radiation hazards. General treatment is given to the problems and equipment involved in operational or process monitoring, site monitoring, effluent monitoring and area or personnel monitoring. The types of radiation that are encountered in a nuclea... View full abstract»

  • Some Aspect of Protective Systems in Nuclear Power Plants

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):22 - 30
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1595 KB)

    Protective systems for nuclear power reactors have assumed a high degree of development. The primary motive has been the emphasis given to making reactors safe and more recently the desire to offset the site distance requirement through engineered safeguards. Increased reactor operating experience and improved safety analyses have contributed to a better definition of the events and conditions req... View full abstract»

  • Transient Radiation-Induced Response of MOS Field Effect Transistors

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):31 - 37

    It was found that the radiation-induced leakage current across the gate-to-substrate and the drain-to-substrate semiconductor junction dominates the behavior of MOS field effect transistors for small gate impedances. The smaller radiation-induced gate leakage current consists, to a large extent, of components due to secondary emission and air ionization effects. For large gate impedances, the gate...

  • A Nuclear Radiation Sensitive Switch

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):38 - 42
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1333 KB)

    High intensity pulsed nuclear radiation tends to make back biased semi-conductor junctions conduct. Arma undertook the design and development of a circuit which would provide a switch opening in response to nuclear radiation pulses. The design objectives for the Radiation Sensitive Switch were that switch response should be fast, triggering should be adjustable, operation should not be impaired at... View full abstract»

  • Radiation Damage in SiC

    SiC has a band gap energy of about 2.9 ev; intrinsic SiC would be an excellent insulator at room temperature. In practice, the uncompensated room temperature resistivity of single crystal SiC rarely exceeds 100 ¿-cm. Information about radiation damage in SiC is scanty. Rates of charge carrier removal upon irradiation are similar to those found in Si. Most of the defects anneal at less than 8000C;... View full abstract»

    Spark and oorona-streamer characteristics have been obtained for a wire-plate alpha particle counter having an electrode gap 1.27mm - 12.7mm and a wire diameter 0.07mm - 0.5mm. Applied voltages Va up to 22kV were employed. The working characteristics for different quenching resistances R are reduced to a single fundamental characteristic independent of R. Conditions are given for attaining a flat ... View full abstract»

    Experimental study indicates that a significant contribution to the radiation-sensitivity of certain contemporary silicon planar transistors is caused by space-charge modifications in the oxide surface region. Certain silicon planar transistors, which are inherently passivated and protected by a silicon dioxide surface layer, have been found to realize appreciable degradation after exposure to spa...

    Medium power silicon controlled rectifiers have been exposed to a maximum integrated fastneutron flux of 4 x 1013 nvt. An increase in the current required to turn on thie controlled rectifier and an increase in the break-over voltage were observed after irradiation. The saturation voltage increased as a result of irradiation, exceeding 200 volts at an integrated fast neutron flux of 4 x 1013 nvt. ... View full abstract»

  • Thermionic Analysis by Use of a Digital Computer

    As accurate and rapid techniques for analytical performance prediction of thermionic plasma diodes are presently lacking, an IBM digital computer program has been developed to semi-empirically predict diode performance. Experimental curves of voltage versus current are presented for tantalum, molybdenum, and rhenium for a wide range of emitter and cesium temperatures. These are processed by the pr...
