  • The transverse wake field in a dielectric wake-field accelerator for drive beams with a small nonaxisymmetric component ({ital l}{ne}0) has been calculated in the ultrarelativistic limit. It is found that for the {ital l}th azimuthal mode, where {ital l}{gt}0, the transverse component is comparable to the longitudinal component. This implies that these devices will be subject to a beam-breakup instability as the drive current becomes large.
  • The transverse wake fields in a dielectric wake-field accelerator are calculated for the case of an off-axis drive beam. The calculation is done taking into account the transverse dimensions of the wake-field structure including the ratio of inner to outer radii of the dielectric liner {ital S}. The results indicate that the {ital m}=1 radial transverse wake-field component is much smaller than the {ital m}=0 axial wake field for liners with small hole size ({ital S}{le}0.2). Therefore, beam breakup instabilities can be avoided, even for large drive beam currents, in dielectric wake-field accelerators where {ital S} is small.{lt}UF1col{gt}
  • We have remotely monitored the thermodynamic phase of deuterium--tritium (DT) fuel inside glass shells used for inertial confinement fusion (ICF) research by observing the x-ray emissions from the shell. These studies are an adjunct to our beta heating experimental program. (M. T. Mruzek, D. L. Musinski, and J. S. Ankey, J. Appl. Phys. {bold 63}, 2217 (1988)). By monitoring the production of low-energy x rays ({lt} 18.6 keV) from the interaction of the beta decay with the shell walls, we are able to track phase changes between gas and solid. We incorporated the mature x-ray detection technology of scintillators andmore » photomultiplier tubes onto the experimental apparatus we use to study the beta heating effect. (M. T. Mruzek, J. S. Ankey, and D. N. Decker, J. Vac. Sci. Technol. A {bold 6}, 1889 (1988)). Restrictive space limitations were a major hardware consideration in the retrofit. We review the scientific basis for the technique, the proof of principle experiment that encouraged us to pursue it, and the final experimental configuration the x-ray probe has assumed. We suggest that a refinement of the measurement technique may provide information about the rate of DT fuel redistribution in beta heating targets.« less
