Abstract

A dipole `septum' magnet without a material septum has been designed and tested as part of a fast beam kicker system for use in intense, electron-beam induction accelerators. This septum magnet is a simple, iron-based electromagnet with two static, oppositely oriented dipole field regions used to provide further separation of beam centroids given a small angle kick by a fast beam kicker. The magnet geometry includes removable pole pieces to allow experimental flexibility. Field errors experienced by the beam depend crucially on the magnitude of the initial kick that provides displacement of the beam centroids from the transition region between the two dipole field regions. Results of simulations are reported.
