Compact 6 MeV Rotating-Wave Accelerator for Radiotherapy

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/03 - 08/31/04
PI: Jose E Velazco

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose the development of a very compact, rotating-wave electron beam accelerator (RWA) for x-ray radiotherapy applications. The proposed accelerator employs a very short accelerating structure to accelerate a low-energy electron beam to a final energy of 6 MeV in a highly efficient manner. The RWA off...
