The Compact Linac has been developed to investigate the potential for small, low-energy linear accelerators to be utilised in application areas such as security, non-destructive testing and wastewater treatment.
The highly characterised electron beam can be utilised horizontally, or deflected through 45 degrees for use with liquid samples. The system is housed in a fully shielded test facility with client access to a flexible experimental area.
- Electron beam energy range between 2 MeV and 4 MeV
- Pulse widths down to 500 ns
- Pulse repetition rates in the range 1 to 400 Hz
*Expected system performance following re-commissioning taking place in 2017.
