    A snap-off constant fraction timing discriminator has been designed, involving no critical adjustments and free of shape limitations. The instrument accepts both short pulses from photo-multipliers (using fast or slow scintillators) and tail pulses from low-noise preamplifiers. Its performance (without rejecting events close to the detector junction) was checked with the aid of fast and slow scint... View full abstract»

    Efforts towards the utilization of nuclear power in desalination to satisfy Egypt's long term water needs considered natural uranium heavy water moderated and cooled reactors as one of the promising prototypes. A feasibility study for a 40 MWth pilot plant was conducted and the main core features were determined. The concept comprised natural uranium metallic fuel, heavy water moderator and coolan...

    The capacitors were irradiated with an electron beam at doses of 1011 to 1017 electrons/cm2 and energies of 5 kV and 15 kV. C-V measurements were made to characterise the effects of irradiation. The C-V curves revealed a positive fixed charge accumulation in the oxide at dose levels above 1013 electrons/cm2. In the thicker oxide samples at 5 k... View full abstract»

  • Anomalous second breakdown failure levels in Germanium gold-bonded diodes

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 20 - 22

    Pulse injection tests on germanium gold-bonded diodes showed that failure due to second breakdown may occur at lower power levels in the forward direction than in the reverse direction. The result is shown to be due to the hemispherical geometry of the junction and the associated spatial variation of the conductivity modulation. Variation between devices of different manufacturers is noted. View full abstract»

  • Analytical study of amplitude risetime compensated timing with Germanium planar detectors

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 23 - 28

    A method is developed for calculating the time dispersion of amplitude and risetime compensated (ARC) timing with germanium planar detectors. Universal curves for pulse shape dependent timing error and for time jitter indicate that there is an optimum ratio between the inverted and delayed pulses which leads to the best realization of a given experimental objective. Curves for the corresponding sy... View full abstract»
