    This paper describes the design, construction, and performance of a time base generator for use with a cathode ray tube capable of displaying fractional nanosecond transients. The generator was designed for use with a traveling wave cathode ray tube having a simple electrostatic time base deflection structure. When operating into the deflection plates (total capacitive load of 25 pF), the generato... View full abstract»

    A theory is formulated for the static properties of silicon junction field-effect transistors which are compensated with defects with deep energy levels. A single effective level of an acceptortype 0.40 eV below the conduction band accounts satisfactorily for the degradation of heavily doped n-channel devices with neutron irradiation. Furthermore, based on the existence of defect levels, a frequen... View full abstract»

    A miniature superconducting 52 ohm coaxial transmission line 278 meters long, having a lead outer conductor (0.129 cm id), a teflon dielectric, and a niobium center conductor (0.038 cm), has been measured in both the time and frequency domains. The observed system step response (10% - 90%) times were 1.5 ¿s at room temperature, 375 ns at 77K, and 255 ps at 4. 2K. The system step response data for... View full abstract»

  • Nanosecond Photography of Shock-Induced Elastic Ripples

    When electronic circuitry is exposed to a shock wave of nuclear origin, intense acoustic agitation occurs within each of the components. Obviously, each component must be exceedingly strong mechanically in order to withstand such conditions. Our work primarily concerns survival of transistors and integrated circuits. In these devices there is a tendency for elastic or plastic surface ripples to de... View full abstract»

    The effects of 3 MEV electron bombardment on the shot noise properties of silicon junction transistors were studied. The noise figures of the transistors were greatly affected, especially at high source resistances, by the increase of the gene ration-recombination current in the emitter junction after electron bombardment. The results of noise figure measurements show good agreement with the noise... View full abstract»

    A discussion is presented of the extent of radiation effects encountered with radiation source models and the status of protection techniques for representative science instruments proposed for the Outer Planets Grand Tour missions. Preliminary results of a literature search to collect damage/interference effects data on sensitive components such as silicon detectors and vidicon tubes are describe... View full abstract»

    Radioisotope thermal electric generators (RTG's) and radiation heater units (RHU's) are presently being used or considered for sources of electrical power and heat for the Apollo, Pioneer and Viking Projects. Both RTG's and RHU's have considerable merit if proper precautions are taken to compensate for overall system response to the nuclear radiation sources. This paper summarizes the nuclear char...
