Abstract

At the 9th INTDS conference in 1980 we reported on the development of a new method for the preparation of deposits using a commercial piezoelectric pulsed jet device conceived for character printing with ink. This work was very preliminary and there remained several problems to be solved in order to obtain a reliable system for the quantitative preparation of uniform deposits of scarce isotopes. The present paper is concerned with the development of a more appropriated device. Details are given concerning the construction and performances of a drop generator, the adaptation of a plotter and the development of an interface card which connect a TRS-80 microcomputer to the plotter. Software was written so that rectangular and circular deposits of the required surfaces and thicknesses can be produced at the command of the microcomputer. The quality of 235-U acetate deposits (calcined to oxide) in thicknesses between 100 mug/cm**2 and 20 mg/cm**2 is evaluated.
