Abstract : This final report summarizes important experimental results from the NRL modified betatron program and documents its status at its termination on July 17, 1992. The objective of this program was to study the critical physics issues of the concept and to accelerate a 1 kA electron ring to 20 MeV with subsequent extraction of the ring. Critical physics issues associated with the concept are self field effects, image forces at the walls of the vacuum chamber, ring equilibrium, ring stability during acceleration, beam injection and finally extraction.
