Title: OVERALL OPTICAL VIEWER

Abstract

An apparatus is described for viewing through a tube any desired internal portion of a reactor. A convex head mounted with a plurality or negative lenses with their axes substantially intersecting is fixed in the tube nearest the portion to be viewed. The interior of the tube is filled with a liquid transparent to light and opaque to neutrons and gamma rays. The lense may be made from polymerized methyl methacrylate and aqueous zinc chloride is a suitable transparent liquid.
