Recently, we presented a new approach for a compact radio-frequency (RF) accelerator structure and demonstrated the functionality of the individual components: acceleration units and focusing elements. In this paper, we combine these units to form a working accelerator structure including a matching section between the ion source extraction grids and the RF-acceleration unit. The matching section consist of six electrostatic quadrupoles (ESQs) fabricated using 3D-printing techniques. The…
