Abstract : Detailed analysis of the incoming evaluation procedure for tantalum powder was continued. An apparent anomaly in the breakdown voltage test results has become apparent. At the present time, no experimental evidence is available which can throw doubt on the test procedure. A procedure for electrical evaluation of tantalum wire was worked out. Studies of anode fabrication and capacitor assembly were initiated. Wide variances in the in-process breakdown voltage tests was observed. Some specifications were revised in view of the results of dehydration studies and data analysis on the first pilot run samples. (Author)
