Abstract : Experimental and analytical investigations of the component physical phenomena and over-all operation of linear crossed-field accelerators of single and multiple electrode-pair designs are presented. Analysis and experimental measurements are given for heat transfer to accelerator components; effects of geometry, power level, pressure, magnetic field strength and tensor conductivity on accelerator performance; and over-all operating characteristics of accelerators over a range of operating conditions.
