A spectrograph of the Seemann type has been constructed for the purpose of investigating the radiation from the high potential x-ray tube at the California Institute. A typical spectrogram obtained with 600 kilovolts on the tube is presented. The photometer record shows a continuous spectrum with its maximum intensity at about 200 kilovolts and a short wave-length limit in the neighborhood of 600 kilovolts. The range covered is roughly from 100 to 20 x-units. It is proposed to use the apparatus for determining absorption coefficients by photographing the spectrum of radiation which has passed through an absorbing screen. No anomalies of any kind have been observed so far.
