Title: CALUTRON OSCILLOGRAPH SYSTEM

Abstract

Circuits and equipment useful in conneetion with the determination of the coordinate points of maximunn intensity of a calutron ion beam is described. The broad aspects of the apparatus include a novel sweep circuit for generating a voltage applied to the calutron deflection plates for deflecting the ion beam in a single direction, apparatus for recording beam intensity at selected beann traversal points, and control means for terminating the sweep and stopping the recording apparatus. In addition, a circuit is provided which is responsive to sparking at the deflection electrodes, and a signal device does not operate unless the deflection run is free of sparking interference.
