Abstract:

A complete technical description of the Lincoln Accelerator Laboratory is given. The primary purpose of the laboratory is to conduct radiation-effects studies for space vehicles and components. Particle fluxes up to 68 inches in diameter are provided in a solar-vacuum chamber. These can be either monochromatic electrons at any energy from 300 kev to 4 Mev electrons distributed in a Van Allen energy spectrum from 40 kev to 4 Mev, or monochromatic protons at any energy from 50 kev to 4 Mev. The general-purpose capabilities of the laboratory are described, equipment listed, and information concerning the facilities is given to enable the investigator to design his experiment for greatest convenience and compatibility.
