Date of Defense 1958-05-15 Availability restricted AbstractThough 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
