AMF nuclear engineering brings you advanced. ..RADIATION PROCESS EQUIPMENT
The mass-irradiation of foodstuffs for the prevention of spoilage and infestation is one of the most exciting and promising applications of atomic energy. And AMF Atomics is in the forefront of the field, applying its nuclear engineering skills and experience to the development of practical irradiation equipment to serve food processors throughout the nation.
Sixty billion vibrations per second
A great new giant of communications—a waveguide system for carrying hundreds of thousands of voices at once, as well as television programs —is being investigated at Bell Telephone Laboratories. Such a revolutionary system calls for frequencies much higher than any now used in communications. These are provided by a reflex klystron tube that oscillates at 60,000 megacycles, and produces waves only 5 mm. long.
