Pulsed Power Diagnostics and Control Systems
(as pertinent to the ISIS accelerator)


Dr. Vesselin Dimitrov
Idaho Accelerator Center
Idaho State University

An overview of the pulsed electron accelerator ISIS diagnostics and control systems will be given, with some discussion of their principles of operation. ISIS is a unique piece of equipment, capable (upon completion) of producing 9.5MeV, 10-15kA, 35ns duration electron pulses. A number of potential ISIS applications will be addressed as well.
