Abstract:

Mechanical hardware has been developed that remotely places integrated circuits, transistors, and other fixed components into an electron beam in a manner which allows measurements of radiation effects. The associated circuitry used for these measurements is presented, as well as the methods employed in reducing RF noise. A technique which uses a set of cross hairs to give time and spatial beam profiles which aid linear accelerator tuning and beam manipulation is described. Initial transient radiation effects experiments have been conducted and photo currents observed. Schematics, pictures, and construction details of the apparatus are presented. Author
