The Secret history of the atomic bomb by Anthony Cave Brown( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atomic energy for military purposes : the official report on the development of the atomic bomb under the auspices of the United States government, 1940-1945 by Henry De Wolf Smyth( Book )

3 editions published between 1945 and 1948 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the development of the atomic bomb by the combined efforts of many groups in the United States is a fascinating but highly technical account of an enormous enterprise. Obviously military security prevents this story from being told in full at this time. However, there is no reason why the administrative history of the Atomic Bomb Project and the basic scientific knowledge on which the several developments were based should not be available now to the general public. All pertinent scientific information which can be released to the public. To this end this account by Professor H.D. Smyth is presented

At Clinton Engineer Works -Tennessee Eastman Corporation, a mass spectrograph was operated in an evacuated tank between the pole faces of a large electromagnet to separate the isotopes of uranium. The mass spectrograph consisted of an ion source, an accelerating-electrode system to draw the ions at uniform velocity into the evacuated space, a liner to define a space of uniform electric-field intensity through which the ions passed, and a receiver to collect the separated isotopic ions. The source was operated at a potential positive with respect to the liner; part of the accelerating-electrode system was operated at a potential negative with respect to the liner; and the liner and receiver both operated at the same potential. Quantity production of these isotopes necessitated high currents to maintain the desired potentials, and the voltage applied necessitated rigid protection measures
