Abstract:

Remote determination of relative position or angular velocity of rotating shafts or other elements in servomechanism systems is a continuing problem in the development of more compact and precise control and telemetry devices. Such measurements are required to provide data or to effect desired adjustments of control systems. This report describes an approach to the design of a device employing nuclear radiation sources radio-isotopes in conjuction with suitable detectors to provide precise mechanical position and velocity measurements. The Mossbauer Effect is utilized via a resonant gamma ray detector for the quantitative sensing of relative motion. Author
