As part of our ongoing development of the Dielectric Wall Accelerator, we are studying the performance of multilayer high-gradient insulators. These vacuum insulating structures are composed of thin, alternating layers of metal and dielectric, and have been shown to withstand higher gradients than conventional vacuum insulator materials. This paper describes these structures and presents some of our recent results.
