Abstract : The objectives of the program were to perform experimental investigations directed toward the design and fabrication of new charged particle detectors. The particle detectors are to be used in satellite, rocket, and laboratory experiments to study the magnetospheric boundary regions of space and must be capable of detecting particles with energies of 1 keV or less maintaining high counting efficiency. To attain these goals it was necessary to do extensive field plotting of entry dynode structures in order to arrive at a design configuration that would insure good collection and counting efficiencies, also it was necessary to devise equipment, fixturing, and testing techniques for accurately determining spatially, these efficiencies.
