[′pelə‚trän]
(nucleonics)
A type of electrostatic accelerator that utilizes a charging system consisting of steel cylinders joined by links of solid insulating material such as nylon to form a chain; the metal cylinders are charged as they leave a pulley at ground potential, and the charge is removed as they pass over a pulley in the high-potential terminal.
