Title: CALUTRONS

Abstract

Isotope separating devices known as calutrons are discussed, and a calutron having a number of transmitter units arranged to transmit a corresponding plurality of ion beams to a plurality of receiver units to increase the degree of efficiency in the use of the available evacuated tank space is presented. Various arrangements of transmitter and receiver units are attached to a removable section of the tank wall. In addition, a panel of the wall section may be removed to withdraw a particular unit without disturbing the adjustment and position of the unit with respect io its mating unit.
