Abstract:

Simplified transfer function techniques and curve-follower representations were developed for predicting the responses of multiple-circuit systems in a transient gamma radiation environment. These analysis methods are applicable to normally linear circuits that may be driven nonlinear cutoff or saturation by radiation and to nonlinear switching circuits. The radiation responses of a linear five-stage amplifier and a four-stage switching curcuit were determined. The radiation responses of these circuits were also obtained from a complete analog computer analysis of each circuit. The radiation responses obtained from the simplified methods were identical to the complete analysis results. An additional check was performed by irradiating real circuits with a linear electron accelerator linac and comparing the experimental and theoretical responses. These comparisons revealed excellent agreement. The application of direct electrical pulses to real circuits to simulate radiation responses was investigated. Author
