Abstract : The Cockcroft-Walton Positive Ion Accelerator, installed at US Army Nuclear Defense Laboratory, Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland, has a maximum energy of 650 keV, is capable of producing a direct current beam of approximately 1-mA of low-Z nuclei, or of producing beam pulses 2 to 15 ns wide and 2 mA in amplitude. This report describes the accelerator, the accelerator's enclosure, and some of the accelerator's capabilities. (Author)
