Abstract : This work summarized in this report covers two research topics. The first deals with a feasibility study of the use of induction linac technology for the production of a multistage proton accelerator, while the second deals with the generation and application of intense microwave radiation signal for use in a compact high average current electron accelerator. The induction linac study was motivated by the objective of obtaining a high current (several kA) deuteron beam of about 30 MeV for neutron production and also to model the late stages of an induction linac system for use in a heavy ion fusion reactor, and the latter study by the possibility of using ultra high power microwave sources developed in our laboratory and elsewhere for the construction of an electron accelerator for use in applications such as FEL drivers. In this report we summarized both programs. Details of the results obtained may be found in the published papers, copies of which are appended to this report.
