Abstract:

During the past year the experimental facilities have been augmented by the construction of a large diameter 60cm vacuum chamber with and array of radial current collectors to support detailed studies of beam propagation characteristics, and a new pulsed magnetic field coil surplus from the Autoresonant Acceleratoar project. This new coil provides much more uniform fields over a longer axial length than did the previous coils. In addition, a Department of Defense University Instrumentation award is currently being used to construct a completely digital fast data acquisition system. This system, currently under installation in a special shielded room in the laboratory, will allow much greater flexibility in the manner in which we acquire and process data and hopefully will eventually reduce the yearly expenditures for Polaroid oscilloscope camera film.
