Abstract

The electrostatic generator will be housed in a new underground laboratory connected to the physics building by a tunnel. Since last fall work has been proceeding on the construction of the generator inside of the 2½' by 50' steel tank. This pressure vessel will allow operation of the generator at pressures up to 8 atmospheres absolute. An intermediate electrode has been introduced. Two cotton fabric woven-endless belts with a linear speed of about 5,000' per minute will charge the high potential electrode. The 22' accelerating tube is being constructed of short porcelain sections with steel spinnings serving as accelerating electrodes.
