Cockcroft-Walton electron accelerator introduction

Voltage doubling accelerator, also known as high voltage doubling accelerator, is a kind of accelerator that accelerates electrons, protons, deuterons, and various ions using the DC high voltage generated by the voltage doubling rectification principle. It is also the earliest built low energy accelerator. The pressure doubler is composed of a particle source, a high-voltage power supply, an acceleration focusing system, a vacuum system, and a control system. It can provide a strong ion current and the acceleration energy can be adjusted. The device is simple and easy to use, but has low acceleration energy and poor energy stability.
