Title: Push-pull betatron pair

Abstract

The disclosed push-pull betatron accelerator has first and second coaxial betatron tubes in which first and second electron beams are alternately accelerated in opposite directions of rotation. Both tubes are linked by the same alternating current accelerating flux, produced by one or more accelerating flux coils. The betatron tubes are provided with first and second guide fields having alternating current components which are in the same direction. The first and second guide fields have direct current biasing components which are in opposite directions for the two betatron tubes. In this way, the full advantages of guide field biasing are achieved. The first electron beam is accelerated in the first tube when the accelerating flux is changing between its negative maximum and its positive maximum values. The second electron beam is accelerated in the second tube when the accelerating flux is changing between its positive maximum value and its negative maximum value. In another embodiment, there is only one betatron tube, in which two electron beams are alternately accelerated in opposite directions of rotation.
