Publications, 19 April 2019
The JINR Publishing Department published the preprint «On the Limits for the Accelerated Beam Current in the LUE-200 Linac of the IREN Faсility» E9-2019-4. The authors are Sumbaev A. P., Barnyakov A. Yu., Levichev A. E.
The beam current loading of the accelerating fields is discussed for the linear accelerator LUE-200 of the IREN facility (a neutron source at the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics, JINR). The LUE-200 electron linac consists of two disk loaded traveling wave accelerating structures with the operating frequency of 2856 MHz and SLED-type power compression system. The limits for the accelerated beam current are defined for different pulse durations of the beam current and RF power. The calculated results are discussed and compared with the measurements.
