Title: CALUTRON

Abstract

A means of eliminating oscillating electrons from the arc slit region of calutron ion sources is offered. Free electrons and ions generated by the beam bombarding atoms of ambient atmosphere are discharged by a fin arrangement which sets up an electric field. The discharged ions travel toward a recess in which a fin and blister'' effect limits oscillations to one region from which they are removed by reversed electric fields. (T.R.H.)
