Abstract : Two new circuits used with the MHD turbulence facility are described and their operation is explained. The first circuit is an L-C delay circuit utilizing a diode to produce a sharp spike at the end of a half cycle. The second circuit is used for shorting out the grid spike that occurs when a high-voltage thyratron breaks down. It is thought that these 2 circuits will be of considerable use in the type of work being done in his laboratory. (Author)
