Abstract:

The second axis of the Dual Axial radiography Hydrodynamic Test DARHT-II facility at LANL is currently in the commissioning phase1. The beam parameters for the DARHT-II machine will be nominally 17 MeV, 2 kA and 1.6 s. This makes the DARHT-II downstream system the first system ever designed to transport a high current, high energy and long pulse beam 2. We will test these physics issues of the downstream transport system on a scaled DARHT-II accelerator with a 7.8-MeV and 950-A beam at LANL before commissioning the machine at its full energy and current. The scaling laws for various physics concerns and the beam parameters selection are discussed in this paper.
