Abstract:

The STP experiment has been placed in operation during this contract period. A number of electron injectors have been explored with the injected charge shown to scale linearly with the injector bias voltage. Injected charge levels approximately 100 micro-coulombs, which corresponds to potential well depths of approximately 300 kV, have been measured as will be described in this report. Vertical magnetic field coils have been installed on the experiment, and preparations for high-energy electron injection have been completed. Theoretical studies of high-energy injection, including single-particle and fully-relativistic self-consistent calculations, are presented. In addition, a theoretical study of switching energy stored in the torus is reported. Author
