We design a C-band standing-wave accelerating structure for an X-ray source of the imaging and medical applications. It is capable of producing 6-MeV, 100-mA pulsed electron beams which is focused by less than 1.5 mm without external magnets. As an RF source, we use peak 1.5-MW magnetron with duty factor of 0.08%. The accelerating structure is a bi-periodic and on-axis-coupled structure with a built-in bunching section, which consists 3 bunching cells, 13 normal cells and a coupler cell. It operated with π/2-mode standing-waves. The bunching section is designed to enhance the RF phase focusing in order to achieve 1.2-mm beam spot size. Each cavity is designed with the MWS code to maximize the effective shunt impedance within 3.5% inter-cell coupling. In this paper, we present design details of RF cavities and the beam dynamics simulation by the PARMELA code.
