Abstract:

A linear electronic control system has been analyzed to determine the effect of gamma radiation on its performance. A computer-aided analysis program CIRCUS was used to compute the individual circuit reactions to the gamma-induced photocurrents, and experimental techniques were employed to find the circuit nulling times as a function of offset voltages caused by the short-term gamma effects. The circuit analyses were verified by a series of laser experiments. Author
