NEW YORK Jan. 11--Cornell Uni- versitjl announced today the development if a new laboratory "howitzer" dcsigrjcd to disintegrate atoms. The new atom-breaker uses ultrahigh' frequency radio apparatus to throw light and heavy atoms at a target with a speed of thousands of miles a .second. It is the result of more than three years' work by Dr. Lloyd P. Smith, professor of physics at Cornell, and was developed to supplement .existing apparatus for atomic study. The instrument is. an eight-foot glass vacuum tube, six inches in dia- .meter, fed by an electrical circuit. This 'circuh provides positive and negative charges alternating at the radio-frequency rate of 10 million times-a second. In contrast to the previously developed cyclotron which shoots its atomic "bullets" in a merry-go-round motion, the' new -itbmic gun accelerates its projectiles in a line and is called a linear re .onant accelerator. With his "assistant, Dr. Paul L. Hartman of Reno, Nov., Dr. Smith completed the machine -at a cost of about $7,000. · According to Dr. Smith, the instrument: may be regarded as an atomic cannon, firing projectiles at other at 3ms to disintegrate their nuclei, or ''particles." By studying the resultant atomic "explosions" scientists hope to-understand the nature of the enormous forces holding-the nuclear constituents of atoms together.
