Abstract:

A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THE ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENTS IN USE TODAY HAVE AN OSCILLATOR OR WAVEFORM GENERATOR OF SOME SORT. AN OSCILLATOR MAY BE USED SIMPLY AS A SOURCE OR REGULARLY SPACED PULSES, A CLOCK, OR AS THE LOCAL OSCILLATOR IN A RECEIVER. NO MATTER HOW THE OSCILLATOR IS USED IT MUST MAINTAIN ITS FREQUENCY OF OSCILLATION TO A SPECIFIC DEGREE OF ACCURACY. IN A GROWING NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS THESE OSCILLATORS ARE REQUIRED TO OPERATE IN THE PRESENCE OF PROTON RADIATION. THE SOURCE OF THIS RADIATION CAN BE FROM SOLAR FLARES, COSMIC RAYS OR CHARGED PARTICLE DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE DOSE AND FREQUENCY SHIFT OF THESE OSCILLATORS IS IMPORTANT TO QUANTIFY THE DEGRADATION OR FAILURES OF INSTRUMENTS WITH CRYSTAL OSCILLATORS WHEN EXPOSED TO CHARGED PARTICLE BEAMS.
