A high-current nanosecond electron accelerator with inductive energy storage

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A nanosecond electron accelerator with an output energy as great as 600 keV, a beam current of 16 kA, and an accelerating voltage half-height duration of ∼180 ns is described. The accelerator is based on an inductive energy storage composed of two coils. A wire explosive current chopper is used in the inductive storage as a release. The circuit diagram of the accelerator is shown, the design for the accelerator is described, and results from its testing are presented.
