A description of the Dynamitron high-current accelerator is given, illustrated with a photograph of a 3.0 Mv unit. Simplified circuit diagrams of the rectifier cascade are presented and performance data are compared with formulas for internal impedance and power consumption. Brief descriptions of the ion source and the beam tube are also given. Possibilities for future development of the accelerator and accessories are discussed. These include higher voltage, higher beam current, terminal pumping, terminal mass analysis, nanosecond beam pulsing, high intensity pulsing, high energy negative ion production and dual purpose tandem accelerators.
