AB  - The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) has been designing several 3 MeV S-band RF electron linear accelerators (linacs) for non-destructive testing. Until now, the bunching cell of the linac has a full-cell geometry. However, to maximize the acceleration of electrons after emission from the electron gun, the geometry of the first bunching cell is modified from a full-cell to a half cell. To accelerate electron beams more gently, recently, we increased the total number of bunching cells from 1.5 to 2.5. In this paper, we describe design concepts and detailed optimization processes of a 3 MeV linac with the 2.5 bunching cells to optimize RF parameters such as the quality factor, resonance frequency, and uniformity of electric field distribution along the linac. Lastly, we will discuss the application of 3 MeV linac.
