Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory has designed and built a new accelerator based on the Isolated Blumlein concept. The new accelerator called SuperIBEX is to be installed in the new Charged Particle Beam Propagation Laboratory at NRL. The accelerator is designed to generate a single 5-MV, 100-kA, 40-ns FWHM pulse with zero prepulse. The e-beams produced by this accelerator will be injected into pre-formed and beam-generated channels to study CPB propagation physics. The design of the accelerator and Transmission Line Code simulations of the system operation will be presented.
