Progress in the development of compact induction accelerators employing advanced vacuum insulators and dielectrics will be described. These machines will have average accelerating gradients at least an order of magnitude higher than existing machines and can be used for a variety of applications including flash x-ray radiography and medical treatments. Research describing an extreme variant of this technology aimed at proton therapy for cancer will be described.
