AB  - Recently, RTX has been developing a 6/4 MeV European S-band (= 2998 MHz) industrial linac by using a magnetron with a low RF power of about 3 MW for container inspection system (CIS). Its accelerating structure is designed to operate in π/2 mode by coupling 6 accelerating cells together through 5 side-coupled cells. In CIS, high dose rate X-rays from MeV-energy electron beam has been used to detect the possible presence of contrabands in cargoes or truck containers. To determine a dose rate output, the X-ray dose rate can be simulated by using FLUKA Monte Carlo simulation. The aim of this work was to study the effects of thickness of X-ray target on dose rate as well as X-ray dose map at 1.0 m away from the X-ray target. This study gives the thickness of target in which the dose rate can be highest and electron beam current can be lowest.
