Abstract : A 35 gigacycle linear bunching accelerator which has a nonuniform, diskloaded waveguide as an accelerating structure is described. An accelerator which theoretically requires 75 kilowatts of pulsed 35 Gc microwave power to accelerate a 20 milliampere beam to a velocity of 0.776c has been designed and constructed. The attenuation of and the power flow in the nonuniform structure are analyzed. Fabrication techniques for construction of the diskloaded waveguide are described. The measured output velocity of the electrons is within one per cent of the theoretical value. A design for an accelerator which requires 125 kilowatts of pulsed 35 Gc microwave power to produce a 20 milliampere beam with a velocity of 0.9c is presented and is shown to be quite feasible.
