I would guess it is one of the two articles. Here are some basic
Both use a Van de Graaff generator for the high voltage.
The 1959 one is mainly for an electron beam. There is a filament in
the bottom of the accelerator tube. The target is inside of a
sphere that contacts the Van de Graaff sphere at the top. The beam
exits through thin aluminum foil window.
The 1971 version is for protrons. The target is at the bottom of the
accelerator tube and is water cooled. The gun end of the
accelerator tube is within the Van de Graaff high voltage sphere.
Hydrogen is injected at this point. The accelerator tube is
assembled from many 3 inch pieces of glass tubing joined together
with an accelerator electrode at each joint.
Does the book version sound like one of these? They were both by
C.L. Stong, although he was reporting work done by others.
