Ames Laboratory ISC Technical Reports

Stray electrons were produced in the Ames Laboratory linear accelerator by the ion beam striking the target and various other parts of the accelerator. This experiment was done to determine if the stray electrons from parts of the accelerator other than the target could be reduced by using construction materials other than brass. Measurements of the number of electrons produced from several materials, however, indicated that there is no particular advantage in using other materials in place of brass.
