TL;DR: In this paper, a hybrid implicit algorithm was developed to treat dense plasmas accurately, and simulations of neutralized ballistic transport showed improved transport efficiency for a 4-GeV, 4-kA Pb ion beam by including a 1013 cm−3 plasma at initialization.
Abstract: Heavy ion-driven inertial confinement fusion requires efficient transport of the ion beam over several meters from the entrance of the accelerator to the target. Currently considered transport modes with high perveance beams require significant charge and current neutralization that will likely require pre-existing dense plasmas. We have developed a hybrid implicit algorithm to treat dense plasmas accurately. Using this algorithm, simulations of neutralized ballistic transport show improved transport efficiency for a 4-GeV, 4-kA Pb ion beam by including a 1013 cm−3 plasma at initialization.

TL;DR: The results of a comprehensive diode study conducted using a pulsed high-current electron accelerator are reported in this article, where time-dependent analysis of right-cylindrical graphite cathodes has shown evidence of the field emission character of the cold-cathode diode.
Abstract: The results of a comprehensive diode study conducted using a pulsed high‐current electron accelerator are reported Time‐dependent analysis of right‐cylindrical graphite cathodes has shown evidence of the field emission character of the cold‐cathode diode The effects of cathode whiskers or microprojections on the diode response have been observed Within a few nanoseconds after the voltage is applied to the diode, the whiskers explode to form cathode flares The observed diode perveance throughout the remainder of the pulse can be explained in terms of the expansion of the plasma cathode formed by the merger of many cathode flares Cathode plasma velocities ranged from approximately 2 to 3 cm/μsec The observed diode behavior was consistent with that predicted by previous studies of high‐voltage vacuum breakdown
TL;DR: In this article, the beam divergence and perveance of a single aperture three electrode extraction system using helium ions at energies between 10 and 30 keV were investigated. But the most critical parameter was the ratio of the radius of the first aperture to the distance between the first and second electrodes, the highest current density being obtained at values of this ratio less than 0.5.
Abstract: Experimental results are given for the perveance and beam divergence of a single aperture three electrode extraction system using helium ions at energies between 10 and 30 keV. The aperture radii, the electrode thicknesses, and the spacings were varied and from the results a preferred design was obtained for use in a multiaperture array. The most critical parameter was the ratio (S) of the radius of the first aperture to the distance between the first and second electrodes, the highest current density being obtained at values of this ratio less than 0.5. The optimum beam divergence observed corresponded to a Gaussian beam profile with a width (ω) of ± 1.2° at 2 m from the source. The measured perveance at small values of S and at minimum ω lay between 75% and 90% of the value predicted on the basis of a simple model using the Langmuir‐Blodgett formula for the spherical diode.

TL;DR: In this article, a planar-anode cathode was designed for use in a line-focus, planar anode tube with a slot in which the emitter is situated, an adjacent face region which is planar and angled so as to properly form the initial electron beam, a recess to allow the initial beam to be accelerated without significant shaping, and an overhanging portion which completes the electron beam forming.
Abstract: An x-ray tube has at least one approximately planar electron emitter and an emitter-cup cathode configured to provide an electron beam of substantially greater perveance and beam compression ratio than otherwise obtainable with conventional cathode designs. The cup is optimized for use in a line-focus, planar-anode tube and has a slot in which the emitter is situated, an adjacent face region which is planar and angled so as to properly form the initial electron beam, a recess to allow the initial electron beam to be accelerated without significant shaping, and an overhanging portion which completes the electron beam forming.
