Abstract:

A method is proposed for reduction of the radiation response in cables or capacitors. This proposal is based on the above mentioned charge accumulation near interfaces. It emphasizes the design of an insulator composed of various thin layers of material. Each layer should have a thickness less than the observed width of the charge layers .25 to .5 mm. The layers should eventually be separated by thin films of mylar or similar material, or they should be firmly pressed together. We feel that a radiation-insensitive coaxial cable could be designed along the lines of this suggestion. However, a technical development of such a cable is not within the scope of our research contract.
