Abstract
THERE ARE NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS FOR ELECTRON-BEAM RADIATION PROCESSING THAT REQUIRE AVERAGE ELECTRON-BEAM POWER LEVELS IN THE MEGAWATT RANGE. THISPOWER IS FIVE TO TEN TIMES GREATER THAN AVAILABLE WITH COMMERICAL TECHNOLOGIES. THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP INNOVATIVE ELECTRON-BEAM GENERATOR DESIGN CONCEPTS WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF ACHIEVING AVERAGE BEAM POWERS OF 1MW AT 1 TO 10 MEV, HIGH EFFICIENCY (>80%), AND LOW COST ($1 TO 2/W). THESE DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BUILD ON LINEAR INDUCTION ACCELERATOR (LIA) AND MAGNETIC SWITCHING (MS) TECHNOLOGIES BEING DEVELOPED BY DOD AND DOE FOR DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPON APPLICATIONS. AS AN EXAMPLE, DISCUSSION IS FOCUSED ON REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRON-BEAM FLUE-GAS TREATMENT PROCESSES THAT ARE BEING EVALUATED BY DOE FOR REMOVVING NOX AND SOX POLLUTANTS FROM COAL -FIRED POWER PLANT EMISSINS. THE PLANNED EFFORT WILL INCLUDE THE PRECONCEPTUAL DESIGN AND COSTING FOR A SUBSCALE TO EVALUATE AND DEMONSTRATE RESULTANT LIA/MS DESIGN CONCEPTS.
