Abstract : The major accomplishment reported herein is the invention of a two beam accelerator, named "Twobetron" that was supported by this contract. A patent is being granted. This accelerator uses the power of an intense annular relativistic electron beam to drive a low current on axis pencil beam to high energies for industrial and medical applications. For the purposes of this report, high energy is in the 1 to 10 MeV range rather than the GeV range in the high energy physics community. Summarized in this report are the concepts, theories, simulation results, studies of beam modulation, and initial experimental studies.
