Abstract : A solenoid comprising several, discrete, coaxial, circular, superconducting coils provides a magnetic field which decreases radially to an absolute minimum intensity to focus the ions as they are accelerated to the end of the non-relativistic velocity range. As the ions are further accelerated to relativistic velocities, the magnetic field increases radially from the absolute minimum intensity to compensate for the relativistic increase in mass. The revolving ions are accelerated by repeated passage through an electric field which is established in radially-directed resonator horns. The accelerating structure and the associated electric field reinforce the focusing provided by the radially-increasing magnetic field. (Author)
