Abstract : An investigation into the effect of radiation from a linear accelerator on two types of integrated circuit operational amplifiers was made. Dielectric isolation, thin film resistors and compensation diodes were used in one amplifier (micro A744). The other amplifier (micro A709) was fabricated using standard methods. The micro A744 amplifier, in its current stage of development, was found to be more susceptible to the effects of accumulated dose from high energy electrons than the micro A709 amplifier. (Author)
