  A compact 1 MeV linac has been produced at the Cockcroft Institute using X-band RF technology. The linac is powered by a high power X-band magnetron and has a 17 keV 200 mA thermionic gun with a focus electrode for pulsing. A bi-periodic structure with on-axis coupling is used to minimise the radial size of the linac and to reduce the surface electric fields.
