Abstract : An electron beam and collective ion-electron beam accelerating apparatus in which a relativistic electron beam and ions moving with it are accelerated in speed by passing them through in converging waveguide (i.e., a drift tube) of gradually decreasing diameter. The ions are separated from the electrons upon leaving the wave-guide. (Author)
