Paper Abstract

A new class of accelerators Undulated Induction Accelerators (UNIAC -- EH-accelerators) is proposed as a basis for intense X-ray flash sources. Apart from X-ray sources these accelerators can be used for cooling (with simultaneous acceleration) of electron and ion beams, for forming high intensity relativistic beams of neutral molecules, neutrons and plasma fluxes, etc. The key idea of EH-accelerators is the utilization of undulated forms of trajectories of the accelerated particles. They may be trajectories of sinewave form, spiral form, and more complex spatial forms. It is clear that characteristic parameters of modern materials (permanent magnets, accelerator ferrites, and superconductors) allow construction of especially compact, and, at the same time, reliable, and relatively inexpensive acceleration systems in the energy range from hundreds keV to a few GeV. The possibility of constructing compact high intensity X-ray flash sources on the basis of EH-accelerators is substantiated for realization. Special schemes for forming pico- and nano-second intense X-ray pulses are proposed and analyzed. The project peculiarities and state of a preliminary experiment are discussed.
