Application of a Pressure Electrostatic Generator to the Transmutation of Light Elements by Protons


The design and performance of a pressure electrostatic generator capable of operating at 1.7 Mv in a cylindrical tank of over-all length 13′ 6″ and diameter 8′ at a pressure of 80 lb. per square inch is discussed. Studies of the gamma-radiation produced in the transmutation of F19, N15 and C13 by protons are also reported.
