Abstract

The DARHT-II accelerator [1] will produce a 2-kA, 17-MeV beam in a 1600-ns pulse when completed this summer. After exiting the accelerator, the pulse is sliced into four short pulses by a kicker and quadrupole septum and then transported for several meters to a tantalum target for conversion to x-rays for radiography. We describe tests of the kicker, septum, transport, and multipulse converter target using a short accelerator assembled from the first available refurbished cells. This scaled accelerator was operated at ∼8 MeV and ∼1 kA, providing a beam with approximately the same ν/γ as the final 18-MeV, 2-kA beam, and therefore the same beam dynamics in the downstream transport. The results of beam measurements made during the commissioning of this scaled accelerator downstream transport are described.
