Fabrication and tuning techniques for side-coupled electron accelerator structures

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Beginning in 1979, Los Alamos entered into a collaboration with the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) to develop an advanced cw microtron accelerator. The accelerating structures (one 0.9-m-long, one 2.7-m-long, and two 4.0-m-long) containing a total of 184 accelerating cavities have been fabricated and tuned to the 2380-MHz operating frequency. New methods simplified the fabrication of these structures and eliminated several furnace-brazing steps. These fabrication methods, lathe-mounted tuning fixtures, and streamlined tuning techniques were developed to allow efficient production of side-coupled structures. These techniques are now being applied to the 2450-MHz racetrack microtron accelerator structures being fabricated at Los Alamos ... continued below

These techniques are now being applied to the 2450-MHz racetrack microtron accelerator structures being fabricated at Los Alamos for the Nuclear Physics Department of the University of Illinois. Refinements of the described techniques will allow future accelerators of this type to be fabricated by private industry.
