Abstract

A subnanosecond electron accelerator prototype based on the ARSA small-size accelerator with a gas-filled former (nitrogen ~4 MPa) has been developed and studied. The operation principle of the former involves charging of a short storage line and its discharge to a stepped line with an accelerating tube that generates electrons. The recorded electron-beam current pulse length was t0.5 = 0.3 ns, the current amplitude was at least 1.5 kA, and the maximum electron energy was ~850 keV.
