Pulsed diode accelerator
Construction of Pulsed Accelerator KALI-5000:
There are various devices to generate the high voltage pulses but the most popular technique is the Marx generator in which energy storage capacitors are charged in parallel and discharged through synchronized spark gap switching in series resulting in enhanced voltage and power . Once the voltage pulse is generated, it is required to shape them into a flat top type so that when it is injected into the electron gun, the same energy beam will be emitted during that time span. With this flat top pulse as input, the electron gun produces the pulsed electron beam, which can be used for various applications.
