Abstract:

This report includes Machlett Labs., Inc., Springdale, Conn. DEVELOPMENT OF A 350-kV, 25-AMPERE PULSE TRIODE. Quarterly rept. no. 5, 1 Oct-31 Dec 61, by H. Langer and C. V. Weden. Subcontract to Radiation, Inc., Palo Alto, Calif. Efforts continued on the evaluation of Machlett Switch Tube 2. The high-voltage power supply plate transformer and the klystron filament transformer were tested. Tests continued on the interim modulator pulse generator and crowbar circuits. The preliminary high-voltage transmission line design was completed and effort was placed on the klystron tank layout. Production engineering effort was expended on the high-voltage transmission line design, klystron tank layout, finalizing the input power control layout design, finalizing the dc dummy load, and completing the remaining assembly drawings for the control console. Production effort continued on the interim modulator pulse transformers, final assembly and wiring of the interim modulator switch drive, controls console wiring and construction of the input power control unit. The klystron cathode resistor and the pulse-viewing resistor were completed. Author
