The mass-separator, a description of which is given in the present work, was manufactured in the Laboratory of Nuclear Reactors at the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research in 1963-64, utilizing an electromagnet SP-57 A-1 of industrial manufacture. This mass-separator is intended for the separation of radio-active products, generated in nuclear reactors under the influence of fast heavy ions. Computation of the basic parameters of the massseparator and the requirements which must be satisfied have been presented elsewhere N. I. Tarantin and A. V. Demyanov. Preprint. Joint Institute of Nuclear Research, R-1948. Dubna, 1965. In the present work are given a description of the construction of the basic elements of the mass-separator, its ionic-optical characteristics, and the results of the first experiments in the separation of thallium isotopes.
