Abstract

Based on studies of variable multiplicity electron acceleration, the power-current microtron, a cyclic electron accelerator up to energies of 30–35 MeV has been developed at the Institute on Physical Problems of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. The 1–1.5 kW electron beam of the microtron is comparable to the power output of modern linear accelerators operating at similar energies. At the same time, the microtron has a number of significant advantages, due to the simplicity of design of both accelerator and ultrahigh-frequency tract, the high efficiency of ultrahigh-frequency power utilization, good operating characteristics, strictly monochromatic electron beams (variations not exceeding ±50 keV at 30 MeV) and the possibility of continuously changing particle energy as required by the given experimental task.
