Abstract
The simulation of the prompt gamma-ray pulse effects on electronics with an electron linear accelerator (LINAC) has been performed by DREO and other groups. However, the use of a LINAC normally entails wider pulses than those expected on the battlefield. The report examines the effects of the variation of pulse width on electronic response using both theoretical and experimental examples. The conclusions are that pulse-width fidelity is important for a number of possible scenarios, and that for complete understanding of electronic performance, a variable pulse-width simulator is essential.
