Title: RF kicker cavity to increase control in common transport lines

Abstract

A method of controlling e-beam transport where electron bunches with different characteristics travel through the same beam pipe. An RF kicker cavity is added at the beginning of the common transport pipe or at various locations along the common transport path to achieve independent control of different bunch types. RF energy is applied by the kicker cavity kicks some portion of the electron bunches, separating the bunches in phase space to allow independent control via optics, or separating bunches into different beam pipes. The RF kicker cavity is operated at a specific frequency to enable kicking of different types of bunches in different directions. The phase of the cavity is set such that the selected type of bunch passes through the cavity when the RF field is at a node, leaving that type of bunch unaffected. Beam optics may be added downstream of the kicker cavity to cause a further separation in phase space.

  • Accelerator apparatus having an eccentric-shaped, iris-loaded deflecting cavity for an rf separator for a high energy high momentum, charged particle accelerator beam. In one embodiment, the deflector is superconducting, and the apparatus of this invention provides simplified machining and electron beam welding techniques. Model tests have shown that the electrical characteristics provide the desired mode splitting without adverse effects.
  • A system for accelerating particles includes an RF cavity that contains a ferrite core and a liquid dielectric. Characteristics of the ferrite core and the liquid dielectric, among other factors, determine the resonant frequency of the RF cavity. The liquid dielectric is circulated to cool the ferrite core during the operation of the system.

  • The control or reversal of octane requirement increase phenomenon together with improved fuel economy in a spark ignition internal combustion engine is achieved by introducing with the combustion charge a fuel composition containing an octane requirement increase-inhibiting amount of (A) certain oil soluble aliphatic polyamines and (B) certain low molecular weight polymers and/or copolymers of monoolefins having up to 6 carbon atoms, in certain ratio.
  • A method is described for operating an internal combustion engine with a gasoline combustion charge, which comprises introducing with the combustion charge into the engine an octane requirement increase-inhibiting amount of (a) gasoline-soluble iron compound and (b) a gasoline-soluble oxygen-containing compound selected from the group consisting of carboxylic acids and ester derivatives thereof. The engine has a combustion surface characterized as having a combination of thermal conductance and thermal penetration properties which inhibit the build-up of deposits resulting from combustion in the engine, without substantially raising the temperature of the incoming combustion charge.
