Paper Abstract

The dynamical properties of LiNbO3 switches were measured as a function of radiation. The devices are titanium indiffused delta beta switches. Measurements of the gamma radiation level using radiation monitors indicate a total dose of less than 100 rad for a 5-min gamma exposure. The dc levels attenuate for the unswitched case, but not to the same degree that the switched signals do. With pulsed beam, a pulsed attenuation of the signal is evident.
