Title: Possible applications of induction linacs driven by magnetic pulse compressors

Abstract

In the 25 years since induction accelerators were first proposed, they have been used extensively as research accelerators for investigation of a range of particle beam and radiation sources. While the technology has been applied in flash radiography, extensive use of these devices in commercial and military applications has not occurred. Over the last decade, increased understanding of the physics of beam transport and the invention of novel pulse-power designs aimed at high-repetition-rate operation have produced the technical possibility of using the technology as the power source for optical and millimeter-wave free-electron lasers (FELs), relativistic klystrons, heavy-ion accelerators, x-ray sources, CARMs, and electron beam (e-beam) waste/pollutant processors. Magnetic switching has been an important element in many of the concepts intended for these applications. We provide a brief summary of the possible applications of induction linacs driven by magnetic switches and technical issues that must be resolved. 22 refs., 7 figs.
