Abstract

The Advanced Test Accelerator (ATA) is a linear induction accelerator for electrons with design goals of 50 Mev and 10 ka. The accelerator consists of a 2. 5-3 Mev injector and 170 accelerating units, each unit capable of an applied voltage up to 350 kv. Authors investigate a possible mechanism for axial modulation, or 'bunching,' of the electron beam. This mechanism is the path length difference between particles executing transverse motion and particles that remain on axis in the solenoidal transport system. The mechanism is similar to that which gives rise to current modulation in a Klystron amplifier, in which the variation of arrival time is achieved by a modulation of axial speed, not variation of path length.
