Title: CONTROL FOR ISOTOPE SEPARATING APPARATUS

Abstract

Improvements in methods and means for controlling the position and condition of the ion beam of calutrons for more efficient operation were developed. These improvements were accomplished by the addition of a new electrode in the receiver adjacent to and on the far side of one of the ion collector pockets. this electrode receiving and metering a small pcrtion of the outer fringe of the ion beam directed to this pocket. More sensitive and accurate control of the focusing of the ion beams may be obtained by maximizing the ratio of the current to the above pocket to the current to the additional electrode.
