Title: Beam breakup in a solid-state powered linear induction accelerator

Abstract

Scorpius is a new multi-pulse linear induction accelerator (LIA) for flash radiography of large-scale, explosively-driven hydrodynamic experiments. It has been proposed to use solid-state pulsed-power modules to provide the accelerating voltages for Scorpius. It is expected that this approach can provide four programmable 50-kV accelerating pulses to a single gap.
