Abstract : Progress toward selecting ceramic formulations for use in the capacitors required under this contract was described. Attainment of the temperature coefficient of capacitance requirement for the NPO formulation remained a problem. Improved precoating of ceramic power was instituted in preparation for experimental spraying. A stable dip coating system was selected. Progress in the development of slicing, dipping, firing, edge-grinding and -abrading, electrode pickup material application, lead attachment, and assembly techniques was described. Jigs were built and underwent refinement for use in the slicing, dipping, edge-grinding and -abrading, electrode pickup material application, and assembly processes. Production personnel were being trained. (Author)
