The Relative Enhancement Factor in Electromagnetic Isotope Separation
In part 1 a relative enhancement coefficient which describes the performance of an electromagnetic isotope separator is defined. This coefficient is then used to calculate the resolution of the isotopic beams, and a method of predicting enhancements and detecting mass analysis errors is given.
Part 2 gives a brief review of the causes of isotopic contamination and demonstrates how the calculated beam shape can be used to evaluate the importance of the various causes.
