Abstract : The investigation reports on a series of experiments performed with a high current source attached to an existing 10-Mev electron linear accelerator operated under steady-state and stored energy conditions. Design and construction details of the source are depicted and the electron beam characteristics are discussed. Achievement of very heavy beam loading of the accelerator waveguide under steady-state conditions without observable pulse shortening effects is discussed together with the demonstration of short pulses of high current when operating in the stored energy regime. A conclusion encourages the development of more advanced injection systems capable of providing shorter pulse lengths and higher currents so that microwave storage systems may be more fully exploited.
