Abstract:

The Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute LINAC is a traveling microwave type high-energy linear electron accelerator, which accelerates electrons to sufficient energies and in sufficient quantities to provide radiation fields of interest for radiobiological, radiochemical, and materials component research. It provides radiation researchers with a source of high- energy electron or high-energy bremsstrahlung X ray radiation. This report gives details on the LINACs design, operation, and capabilities.
