Title: ELECTRIC DISCHARGE APPARATUS

Abstract

A steel or aluminum small diameter (1/4 in.) tube-type neutron detector containing an inert atmosphere and having a coating of fissionable material on its inner circumference is described. A conducting wire, positioned along the axis of the tube by spaced insulators, is connected to a power source. The coating of fissionable material is brushed onto a nickel foil which is inserted into the tube and supported between the insulators. (AEC)
