MECHANICAL DESIGN OF A COAXIAL VELOCITY SPECTROMETER FOR HIGH-ENERGY PARTICLES

Description: The mechanical design of and apparatus in which crossed electrostatic and electromagnetic fields are used to separate high-energy charged particies of different masses is described. The coaxial geometry of this device allows the separation in about 2/3 the space required with a parallel-plate deflector. The velocity spectrometer described was built specifically to produce enriched beams of K mesons or antiprotons, but it can be utilized in other applications by changing its parameters. The ratio of particle fluxes in a detector with the spectrometer off and on is 700 to 1. (auth)

COHERENT RADIATION FROM A PLASMA

Description: The so-called Collisionless Boltzmann Equation'' or Vlasov Equation'' has been derived previously by Harris by use of a complete statistical treatment of both the plasma particles and the electromagnetic fields. It is shown that a consequence of this approximation is that the entropy of the electromagnetic field as well as that of the plasma particles is a constant. This result is used to demonstrate that only completely the Vlasov equation. (auth)
