    A simple Thomson parabola ion energy analyzer for intense pulsed ion beam is demonstrated. Beam ions collimated by two apertures, are deflected by a time ramping electric field and a static magnetic field. The ramping electric field is produced with a stacked cable pulser powered by a voltage...

    A compact retarding-potential Mott polarimeter combined with microsphere plates (MSP) as electron detectors was built to perform spin-resolved time-of-flight electron spectroscopy. The comparison of the performance of MSP and channeltron detectors shows that the MSP detector has a better time...

    This paper discusses the use of a photoconductively switched radial transmission line transformer as a high-gradient particle accelerator power system. In particular, a 1.8-m-radius radial line with a one-way transit time of 10 ns was fabricated and the voltage attenuation/amplification of a...
