The argument presented in this report is that the character of the conflict in Vietnam is such that a far greater use of barriers than is the case for more conventional operations is indicated. Technological advances, especially in the use of helicopters to move troops quickly, make barrier systems much more economical in manpower than in the past. Developments such as new types of sensors, moving-target radar, infrared detectors, and night-vision devices can contribute to tactical and strategic advantage in the use of such systems. An appendix discusses the French experience in the use of the Algerian barrier. (Author)
Electron emission from metals in intense electron fields by Charles Christian Lauritsen( file )

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. The behavior of a fine wire placed axially in a cylindrical anode is investigated. A brief account is given of the more recent literature dealing with the subject. A quartz tube which has been found particularly suitable and convenient is described. As it is not possible to outgas the ends of the filament and the supports, these parts have been shielded from the field. The usual source of high potential consisting of transformer, rectifier and condensers is used. A description is given of a method for measuring potentials from a few volts up to 25,000 volts. Use is made of a galvanometer and series resistance, and it is thought that the range can be extended to at least 100,000 volts. With heat treated wires results are obtained in good agreement with earlier work, but it is shown that with such wires an appreciable current is obtained only after a break has occurred in the surface of the wire. The resulting characteristic depends only on the power available during the break and is shown to obey the empirical equation: [...]. Microtographs are presented which makes it plausible that the potential gradient may exceed 40 million volts/cm without producing currents in excess of [...] amperes and that the gradient is probably [...] volts/cm or more when reasonably large currents are obtained. With untreated wires a "loop phenomenon" is described which is thought to be due to positive ions from the anode. Heating the tube in an electric furnace is shown to have a great influence on the emission in this case. Microphotographs show that the diameter of such a wire decreases with use. With thoroughly outgased wires the emission is not changed when the tube is submerged in liquid air, and the heating of the filament up to 1400[degrees]K increases the emission only a few percent

Papers of Charles Christian Lauritsen by Charles Christian Lauritsen( Archival Material )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The main body of the papers of Charles Christian Lauritsen were donated to the Caltech Archives in 1974 by the Lauritsen family. They have been organized to accord as closely as possible with his original filing scheme. In most cases original file folder names have been retained. The collection includes research notes and data, correspondence both personal and official, reprints, photographs, and miscellaneous material relative to his work at the California Institute of Technology, and for private organizations and government agencies
