Power-Amplification of a Heavy-Ion Beam in an InductionLinac

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In contrast to an rf linac - a constant-current device in which the beam power is increased solely by the addition of kinetic energy, qV, - the induction linac (I.L.) can amplify the beam power at a much more rapid rate. Proper programming of the switching of the modules and the shape of their voltage waveforms, in the early stages o f acceleration, can result in a beam current that rises at a rate between v{sup 1/2} and V and, consequently, a beam power that varies in the range v{sup 3/2} to v{sup 2}. The current is limited by the ... continued below

The current is limited by the transport lens system, which must overcome the beam defocusing force due to space charge.
