Study of the first Mexican RF linear accelerator

Cristhian Alfonso Valerio Lizarraga

Abstract


In this work, the preliminary design of an electron linear particle accelerator (eLINAC) capable of
delivering a beam within an energy range of 5 to 100 MeV using the S-band acceleration frequency
is presented. At its peak energy, it can be used as an injector for a synchrotron light source,
independent free electron laser, or to generate neutrons. The eLinac will be separated into three
beam lines to deliver electron beams at dierent energies permitting the possibility of industrial
applications such as food irradiation, medical use, and national security.
