Mercury is a 50-ns, 6-MV, 360-kA accelerator with a magnetically-insulated, inductive-voltage-adder (MIVA) architecture. The machine was formerly known as KALIF-HELIA [P. Hoppe et al., June 17-22, 2002] at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe in Germany but now, with some minor modifications [R. J. Commisso et al., 2003], are sited at NRL. Mercury can be operated in either positive or negative polarity [R. J. Commisso et al., 2003; J. W. Schumer et al., 2003; R. J. Allen et al., 2003]. Voltage is added… CONTINUE READING
