Abstract : By axially tapering the current density at each end of an axial pinch a scheme is developed for injecting electrons across magnetic field lines into a modified betatron accelerator. This scheme produces only a minimal perturbation to the circulating electron beam. The axial pinch provides beam equilibrium in the transverse field and the tapering reduces the non-adiabatic growth of the perpendicular particle velocity from 0.5 c to .05 c for the parameters of the NRL modified betatron.
