Abstract : An internally calibrated electron spectrometer was developed for use in calibrating the AFCRL Dynamitron and Van de Graaf accelerators. The spectrometer utilizes a Bi207 source which emits internal conversion electrons of precisely known energies. The system can be attached to the accelerators easily and yields a resolution of better than 1 percent. (Author)
