Abstract
Though modifications and improvements continue

on the Virginia Polytechnic Institute electrostatic

accelerator, the basic machine has been completed and

put into operation. The emphasis thus far has been on

experiments at energies below 750 kev and no attempt has

been made to determine the maximum operating potential.

This work describes the author's contributions to the overall project through the design and construction

of many of the electronic control and instrumentation circuits. Through a study of the inelastic collisions

of protons with fluorinet, a resolution of 9:1 key was

determined.
