    At many laboratories an increasing emphasis is being placed on energy-related research, often at the expense of more basic programs. The effects of this change can be clearly seen at accelerator laboratories, where tools traditionally reserved for nuclear and particle physicists are being applied in areas such as radiation damage, nuclear waste management, and materials science. The success of acc... View full abstract»

    Recent experiments indicate that synchronous untriggered multichannel switching in water will permit the development of relatively simple, ultra-low impedance, short pulse, relativistic electron beam (REB) accelerators. These experiments resulted in the delivery of a 1.5 MV, 0.75 MA, 15 ns pulse into a 2 ¿ line with a current risetime of 2 x 1014 A/sec. The apparatus consisted of a 3 MV Marx gene...

    The VEBA high-current, relativistic electron accelerator has been designed and constructed at NRL for application in the study of high-power microwave sources. To meet the requirements of this study, the accelerator was designed for operation in either a short (60 nsec) or long (2.2 ¿sec) pulse mode. The short-pulse mode has been in operation for nearly two years and has proven to be an extremely... View full abstract»

    Collective acceleration of hydrogen and helium ions by relativistic electron rings has been achieved in the Garching ERA. It features fast electron ring compression and smooth magnetic expansion acceleration. Acceleration of the confined ions was demonstrated by the increase of inertia with the load of the rings and by nuclear track recording. View full abstract»

    The formation of rotating, relativistic electron beams with properties suitable for collective ion acceleration has been studied under a variety of experimental conditions. A straight, cylindrical, relativistic electron beam (typical energy 2-3 MeV, typical current 2-10 kA) is passed through a narrow magnetic cusp, and the resulting rotating downstream beam has been studied using a number of diagn...

    Numerical studies were performed to simulate the acceleration of ion-loaded electron rings by the magnetic expansion method. A finite-sized multiparticle code is used that computes particle-particle interaction forces directly and approximates conductive boundaries. Initial conditions are electron-ion rings in equilibrium, trapped in a magnetic mirror. On one side, the magnetic field is reduced in... View full abstract»

    A new type of accelerator capable of producing a large flux of medium energy ions is discussed. The accelerator contains a charge neutral plasma in a magnetic field. Electron currents parallel to B¿ heat the plasma electrons to an average energy kTe by the Joule process.

    A transformer-charged electron beam generator has been developed. The system is designed to operate with up to 500 kV on a water-dielectric pulse-forming line (PFL) and to generate a 100 kA, 30 ns electron beam. The transformer charging supply replaces a 12-stage Marx generator and reduces the size, weight, and complexity of the system. It also eliminates the need for a large insulating-oil supply...
