Abstract:

The operation and use of the NRL 60 MeV Electron Linear Accelerator is described for the period 1 January - 30 June 1968. Progress reports on the Linac Branch experiments are included, covering electron scattering at 180 deg, two photonuclear experiments, and preliminary neutron capture time-of-flight measurements. Total user time decreased to 1058 hours due to two vacuum accidents, each of which partially destroyed an electron gun. The downtime was used for various engineering improvements, including new rf loads, a rebuilt master timer, and installation of an improved waveguide cooling system. Non-Linac Branch users from eight groups received 32 of the available time, and are individually summarized. Author
