Binary Peak-power Multiplier and Its Application to Linear Accelerator Design*

  title={Binary Peak-power Multiplier and Its Application to Linear Accelerator Design*},
  author={Z. David Farkas},
The voltage gained by a charged particle traversing an accelerator section is proportional to the peak power into the section. Thus a high peak power results in high particle voltages in a relatively short distance, a practical requirement of high particle energy accelerators. Pulse compression is a means to obtain high peak power. This note describes a new method of pulse compression, the Binary Power Multiplier, (BPM) a device which multiplies rf power in binary steps. It comprises one or… CONTINUE READING
