Title: CALUTRONS

Abstract

This patent relates to calutron devices and has for its object the arrangement of several independent ion separating mechanisms, i.e., ion source and ion receiver, within a single vacuum tank to econnmize on space and reduce the duplication of magnetic structure. In each of the two described embodiments the ion separating mechanisms are removably supported within the tank. In addition, the magnetic field is produced in the tank by coaxial coils supported outside the tank and magnetic structure is arranged to confine and provide a uniform field within the tank.
